You’re Invited! Atlanta Passover Community Seders
Passover is Judaism’s most creative platform for telling and retelling the master story of going from slavery to freedom. If you’re looking for a seder, we’ve got you covered! Many synagogues hold traditional community seders on the first two days of Passover, and other Atlanta organizations are offering seders with a theme or message. Here’s a list of seders, from Atlanta Jewish Connector, that are open to the public. We’ve also posted some unconventional non-congregational seders happening in Atlanta, when you click the link below.
Remember too, it’s a great mitzvah to invite others to your seder. This year, the Pittsburgh Jewish community has a launched a national initiative called 2 for Seder, encouraging everyone to push back on Antisemitism by welcoming two non-Jewish neighbors or friends to your seder.
