Because We Were Strangers in Egypt: Communal 2nd Night Seder
Saturday, April 20 @ 6:00 PM - 9:30 PM$25 – $50
“Because you were strangers in Egypt” (Ex. 22:20) – one tradition teaches that the Torah exhorts us no less than 36
times not to mistreat the sojourner among us, because we know what it means to be an alien. When we tell the Exodus
story every year at the seder, we are reminded to think of ourselves as slaves. But do we also think of ourselves as
strangers? Do we recall that among the essential duties connected to our freedom is to take responsibility for the
vulnerable in our very neighborhood?
Join us at Congregation Beth Shalom on the second night of Pesah as we examine these and other questions, drink four cups of wine, eat a Hillel sandwich, and dine as free people.
$50 adult / $25 child up to 17 / under 7 free.
