Community Church of New York Unitarian Universalist
40 East 35th Street (between Park & Madison Avenues), New York, NY 10016

Celebrate the Jewish Festival of Freedom
adapted for our multicultural interfaith setting for all ages

A full multi-course dinner is served with Passover ritual foods including
Rachel Stone's legendary fruit/nut Charoset, gefilte fish,
matzoh ball soup, salad,
roast chicken, potatoes, vegetables, and dessert (fresh fruit and Passover baked goods),
red wine, grape juice, and of course, matzoh.

Children are especially welcome to participate in this historical Jewish celebration of freedom
with special parts for kids, including a treasure hunt for the mysteriously hidden "Afikomen." 
There will be plenty of singing and even hora dancing to make it a memorable event for all!

Leonore Tiefer, as Seder Leader, breathes new life and wonderful humor into the
historic story of freedom whose message resounds with all cultures. The text of the
(which means "The Telling") was co-written by Leonore, and is designed
especially for our multi-cultural Unitarian-Universalist values.

Food is NOT Kosher. Vegans accommodated with
advance notice to Bill Rothfarb at 718-472-0102
