Event description

Description

PLU's Campus Ministry and Interfaith Working Group are excited to invite PLU student's, staff, faculty and their family members to attend our 2019 Interfaith Seder. *


*This event has a limited capacity and so we ask that you consider carefully if you will be able to attend before securing tickets.

What is a Seder?

  • Passover, called Pesach in Hebrew, is a Jewish holiday that celebrates the anniversary of the Jewish exodus from Egyptian slavery more than 3000 years ago.
  • A seder is the Jewish, ritual meal, and storytelling that is traditionally held on the first and/or second night of Passover. Our meal is being held after those nights this year but still in the spirit of this tradition. This seder will feature all vegetarian foods.
  • During a seder there is a ritual order to the service of symbolic food. Each person attending a seder should seek to empathize with the experience of the Jewish people as they were going out of Eygpt. Each item in the seder is part of a 15-step choreographed combination of tastes, sounds, feelings, and smells that have been with the Jewish people for millennia.
  • Haggadah is the word for parable or anecdote and at Passover is the name for the story read. At this seder we will have copies of the Haggadah for participants to follow along with the story. Rabbi Bruce Kadden of Temple Beth El will be leading the seder through the Haggadah.
  • The story-telling and ritual food served recalls both the suffering and persecution of the Jewish people, the ten plagues G-d sent to punish Pharaoh and his nation, and the journey of the former slaves as they leave Egypt and cross the Sea of Reeds.

We look forward to sharing this celebratory Jewish holiday with PLU community of all faiths as an opportunity to learn and honor faith traditions together.
