Welcome to our Seder! Join CJM and our partners for an untraditional seder to remember. We’ll read from our own community Haggadah, clink glasses over stories old and new, connect over charoset and horseradish, and find inspiration around the table.

Must be 21 or older to attend and present a valid ID at the door.


5:15 – 6:00 pm | Private Reception*
6:00 – 8:00 pm | Seder and Dinner

* Guardian Members (& above) and Chai 💙 Ticket holders are invited to a private, pre-seder reception.

Early access tickets go on sale for members one week prior to the General Public. Memberships start at just $36.  

If the ticket price is a barrier to entry, please reach out to Lisa Del Sesto at [email protected].

Presented in partnership with Avodah, Casey Trees, Dayenu: A Jewish Call to Climate Action, DC History Center, GatherDC, HIAS, Historic Congressional Cemetery, Interfaith Council of Metropolitan Washington, Interfaith Power & Light (DC.MD.NOVA), JCADA, Jews United for Justice, MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger, Rainbow History Project, and Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum.
