Community seders

Beginning with the words
“Let all who are hungry come and eat,” the Passover seder is a journey that recreates the Israelites’ exodus from Egypt and the great Festival of Freedom with song, story and special festival foods. Here is a listing of some community seders in the Valley and Tucson.


The Chocolate Seder

The J’s annual Chocolate Seder is a high-energy event, oozing with sweetness and boasting chocolate-dipped strawberries for the karpas, a marshmallow and chocolate charoset mixture and even four glasses of chocolate milk substituted for a traditional seder’s four glasses of wine! The evening includes a fun, interactive Seder, singalongs, prizes and of course…lots of chocolate!
