ATTEND A VIRTUAL SEDER
JVP-Seattle Virtual Seder
The second night of Passover – Sunday, March 28
4:30-6:30pm PT / 7:30-9:30pm ET
The Seattle chapter of Jewish Voice for Peace invites the broader JVP community and all who are seeking connection in these times to join us at our virtual seder table! For our fifteenth annual participatory seder, we will gather on the second night of Passover, Sunday March 28.
Through the telling of the Exodus story, we’ll make connections to present day struggles for liberation, including Palestinian liberation, and experience the journey to liberation together. Although we are sad to not gather in person for the second year in a row, we are excited to connect across time and space with ritual, music, and politics.
Register above for full details & instructions; the event will have real-time captioning. We hope you can join us, and friends & family are welcome too!

We prepare for our liberation by using the elemental forces of steam and smoke. This is our first-ever queer mikveh led by Jews of Color (JOC)! Everyone is invited, all bodies, all peoples! We will be joined by creative collaborators including Dr. Koach Baruch Frazier of Tzedek Lab, Dr. Harriette Wimms of the JOC Mishpacha Project, Zuriel the Kolker, Rebeccah Santa Ana Stromberg, and others for a collective ritual mikveh. We will come together for accessible embodied practice, music & song, poetry, and creative celebration in preparation for Passover. Folks can join from their bathtub or with a cup of tea or vessel of water to drink in your mikveh or do a pouring of water as mikveh. This event will be ASL interpreted and captioned, so as to make it as accessible as possible for all members of our communities. Donations from registration will flow to support Black Mycelium Project and Queer Mikveh Project programming and events. Suggested donation is sliding scale $5-50.
