How Many Ways Can YOU Tell a Story?

Song? Symbols? Embodiment? Improv? Games? Poems? FOOD?

The Seder. Led by Reb Irwin Keller and Ellen Atzilah Solot, and with music by Lorenzo Valensi, Susie Miller and friends, Ner Shalom, located in the heart of Sonoma County, presents its annual community Seder, this year on the traditional second night of Pesach. Together, we will creatively retell our ancient story of slavery and freedom. The evening will be thought-provoking, laughter-filled, and suitable for all generations. A delicious catered dinner (vegetarian plus salmon) will be served. Bring your favorite conversation partners!

Join us. And please read about "Elijah's Plate" below.

Elijah's Plate. There are members of our community who cannot afford this ticket price. Unlike other Ner Shalom events, we have a high hard cost for each person attending. Help us make it possible to offer financial assistance to those who need it! When you register,  make an additional contribution where it says "Elijah's Plate" so we can let all who are hungry come and eat.

Scent-Free! Ner Shalom is dedicated to creating community and ritual space that is safe and accessible to all, including people with severe environmental sensitivities. Ner Shalom is an absolutely scent-free and smoke free environment. Please, please, be mindful of this so our holy space can be safe for everyone!
