Beth Ami Holding Community Passover Seder

Beth Ami–Colorado Congregation for Humanistic Judaism invites you to our Community Passover Seder, Saturday, March 31st 4:00pm, East Boulder Community Center, 5660 Sioux Dr. All ages are welcome. Special gifts for young children.

Humanistic Jews celebrate the universal values of truth, integrity, reality, and dignity as a part of the greater Jewish world.

There is a large attic of memories, traditions, and ethics inherited from our ancestors.  At our Passover Seder we are creating today’s memories.  We are using blessings that represent a constantly evolving Judaism.

Why do we continue to tell the Passover story even though contemporary scholars, archeologists, anthropologists and historians have questioned aspects of the legend?

We tell the Passover story to celebrate the idea that slaves can become a free people.  A story of hope, the Passover story teaches us to have compassion for those who feel oppressed.

We welcome all who feel a connection to the Jewish people, whether through birth, choice, or association.

Beth Ami will provide the main dishes (both meat and vegetarian); guests bring sides, salads, and desserts.  Beth Ami members are free. Guest adults are $30, guest youth are $15, children under 13 are free

Please let us know you are coming  BethAmiRSVP@gmail.com
