Musical Passover Seder 3.21.2021


A FREE online event sponsored by PJ Library in Southern Maine, the JCA, Temple Beth El, and Congregations Bet Ha’am and Shaarey Tphiloh 

Sunday, March 21st | 3 PM

Advanced registration required by Sunday 3/21 at 12 noon to receive the Zoom link. 

Join us for a musical seder experience with the very top artists in Jewish kids music including Nefesh Mountain, Rabbi Josh Warshawsky, Eliana Light, Shira Kline, Ellen Allard, Rick Recht, Joanie Leeds, and Elana Jagoda! 

We'll sing traditional and contemporary songs, tell the Passover story, and explore the foods on the seder plate, the blessings, the questions, and the highlights of the Exodus - from slavery to freedom. Registered participants will receive downloadable resources for families to use at home. Geared towards families with children ages 0-10 years old.

Throughout the musical Seder there will be opportunities to use the crafts (which you can make in advance) from the downloadable JKids Passover Home Activity Kit. To enrich your musical Seder experience, we recommend having the elements of your Seder plate as well as matzah and a kiddush cup available, or you can pretend! If you wish, you can also follow along in the PJ Library Haggadah.
