A signature event of The Weitzman

As many Jews prepare for Passover, the most widely celebrated Jewish holiday, we invite people of all backgrounds to join us for a Passover seder-inspired evening with good food and conversation. Instead of a traditional seder, the retelling of the Exodus story will be substituted with an artfully curated lineup of storytellers, speakers, and songsters whose presentations will reflect Passover themes such as freedom and “welcoming the stranger.”

This annual event is inspired by the historic 1969 Freedom Seder, where hundreds of people of all backgrounds gathered to explore and celebrate freedom in the context of the civil rights movement. This communal event invites you to our table for an evening commemoration, stories, performances, and community exploration of freedom in America today.

*Kosher food to be provided


Safety / Covid 19:
Masking in the museum is recommended, not required.
