The story of the exodus from Egypt is a story about freedom. The women's Seder ritual creates an opportunity to infuse the Passover narrative with a woman's voice and experience.
This year we are excited to feature The Nightingale Trio, an all-woman vocal group devoted to studying and celebrating the rich women's vocal traditions of Eastern Europe. With sounds that could fill a hall and the tight harmonies of a family band, the Nightingale Trio captures this amazing tradition's incomparable richness, dizzying rhythms and raw, earthy power. Weaving together songs and stories, The Nightingale Trio brings to life the loves, struggles and triumphs of the real women behind folk songs.
During our women's Seder, we will celebrate the Passover traditions from a feminist perceptive, share our own stories and enjoy the heavenly music curated and performed by Sarah, Nila and Rachel of The Nightingale Trio. A vegetarian dinner will be served.
Facilitated by Tova Birnbaum.
