Добро пожаловать, друзья! Chag Pesach Sameach!

Welcome to the First Annual Russian Jewish Columbus Celebrate Freedom Seder! On this day, as Russian-speaking Jewish Americans with a very special history and identity, we commemorate the Exodus of Jews out of the USSR and reflect on our own personal Freedoms, whatever they are for each one of us.

This Seder, which means the order of this festive meal, will takes us in order from slavery to freedom!

On the opposite page you will see a handy diagram of the symbolic items on the Seder plate for your reference. We will address their significance throughout the Seder.

Whether you are a Seder pro or a Passover rookie, I hope that you will find this experience meaningful and enjoyable.

During the Seder it is customary to sit in a relaxed position to symbolize our status as free people.

If during the Seder, you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
