Virtual Rosh Hashanah Seder/Hors d’oeuvres

Hosted By: The Jewish Community Project of Lower Manhattan (JCP)

Seders aren’t only for Passover—so break out your dates, olives, pomegranates, and leeks! Practiced by Jews from the Middle East and North Africa for generations, this brief Rosh Hashanah seder involves blessing and eating a variety of foods that symbolize our greatest hopes for the year ahead.

Join Cantor Galeet Dardashti, Rabbi Deena Gottlieb and Rabbi Andy Bachman for an interactive and family-friendly way to welcome in the High Holy Days. In advance of the event, you will receive a list of foods to have on hand for the seder.
