Help me find a Passover Seder in Minnesota!

Passover seder 300x225 Help me find a Passover Seder in Minnesota!I can hear you virtually shouting in your Google searches and on Facebook – “Where can I find a Passover Seder in Minneapolis?” “Where is there a welcoming community seder in Saint Paul?”

Have no fear. TC Jewfolk has the hook up.

Here is a list of all the synagogues in the Twin Cities and across Minnesota hosting large Passover seders that are open to the community. We recommend that you call these synagogues asap to RSVP if you want to attend.

Want an intimate family seder experience (but not your own)? Click here for the websites of all of Minnesota’s synagogues – many of the shuls have programs connecting people who need a Seder with families that have an extra seat at the table. Don’t hesitate to call them (Rabbis – am I right?). There are also interesting seders on other nights this month and next, including an immigrant rights seder, interfaith seders, and a humanistic seder. Check out TC Jewfolk’s event calendar for more information.
