The 35th Annual First Night Community Seder
Led by Rabbi Batshir Torchio
Join our community on the first night of Passover and participate in the telling of the story of the Jewish people's journey from slavery to freedom. Sing old and new favorites, ask questions and find the afikomen (piece of matzah). A traditional kosher seder meal is served. Seder led by JCCSF’s Rabbi Batshir Torchio.
