Hadassah Kolot Nashim, Congregation Beth Shalom and Temple Beth Ami’s Sisterhoods are scheduled to host their annual SCV Women’s Community Seder on Sunday, April 7.
“Seder means order,” said Louise Goudchaux, Chairperson for the event.“All rituals done in same order.”
The event is scheduled from 4-7 p.m. at Congregation Beth Shalom located at 21430 Centre Pointe Parkway.
Seders are a Jewish ritual service and ceremonial dinner generally done on the first two nights of Passover.
This year, Passover begins Friday, April 19 and ends in the evening of Saturday, April 27.
The Women’s Community Seder is two weeks ahead of Passover, Goudchaux said, “because people are so busy preparing when it gets closer to Passover.”
A few things the event focuses on include: community, history, family and advocacy.
“When you think of religious rituals, so many are geared for men,” she said. “It’s little different to have a women’s seder. It is from the women’s view.”
Dinner will be catered, and the seder will be lead by Lori Morgan, a local musician, actress and artist.
“We welcome all women to attend,” Goudchaux said.
The congregations have held women’s seders as a long-standing tradition, but 2018 was their first holding it all together.
This way they can all attend together, share and have a women’s afternoon, Goudchaux said.
The cost of the event is $40 for adults and $20 children from ages 8 to 18.For more information on the event, contact Louise Goudchaux at [email protected].
