Hosting Your First Seder: Never hosted a Seder before? Want to get tips and tricks from an experienced host? This session, hosted by Trina Fuller, will be full of ideas to make your very first Seder easy, fun, and delicious!

Multigenerational Seder: Do you have members of many generations at your Seder table? Toddlers to Teens to Grandmas? Find “That Sweet Spot”. How to structure your Seder to include, not bore, participants of all ages. Hosted by Zach Bernstein.

Social Justice Seder: How can you include meaningful social justice issues/discussions/prayers in your Seder? Consider points in your Haggadah that might lend themselves to such discussions. Learn about Haggadot with particular social justice approaches. Discover ways to prepare a socially responsible meal. Hosted by TBE’s Social Action Committee / Dayenu Circle.

Thinking Outside the Book: Are you looking for new ways to structure your Pesach observance? Explore alternatives and additions to a Haggadah-driven Seder. Can you act out the Exodus story? How do other countries observe Pesach? Could you move the entire Seder outdoors? What happens after dinner? Elaine Yeglic and Ari Marcotte host this session to give you ideas and resources for creating a “You-driven” Pesach.


Tasting & Schmoozing: After the learning sessions and Young Families Seder, there will be a tasting session in the Social Hall. Sample some desserts and sides and take home recipes for those you like! If you have a favorite Passover goodie that you would like to share, contact Deborah Katz at
