“And they made upon the hem of the robe pomegranates of blue and purple, and scarlet and twined linen. And they made bells of pure gold and put the bells between the pomegranates upon the hem of the robe, round and about the pomegranates.”
Our meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month, unless otherwise announced, from September to June, at Temple Sinai, 210 Wilson Avenue, Toronto, at 7:30 p.m.
- What do you love about Pesach and the seders?
- What do you find challenging about Pesach and the seders?
- Is there something you’d like to change about the seder or the haggadah?
At the program members will be part of a discussion on the cultural aspects of Pesach: the halachot; the interpretations that have arisen; different minhagim eg. kitniot, gebrachts, different kinds of charoset, different kinds of karpas; the social justice element of the ancient exodus from Egypt; Leviticus 19:34 The stranger that sojourneth with you shall be unto you as the home-born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
We will discuss items – especially textile items! – used for the seder: pillows, table cloths, matzah covers and consider how we can embellish the ideas to make something unique/ meaningful/ thought provoking/ beautiful/ fun. What is something new we can bring to the table? Let’s make it and share it March.
New members and guests always welcome.
