Flashback Friday – Episode 35: Sedar, 2006
"Why is tonight different from any other night?" These words, spoken by the youngest person in a family, mark the beginning of a Sedar, the traditional Jewish celebration of Passover. At Easton Mountain we accept and celebrate the varied religious traditions of all our residents, as well as those of our extended family. Previous posts have focused on Christian traditions, but throughout our history we have also celebrated Jewish, Pagan, Buddhist, and other faith traditions.
Here are some pictures from our 2006 Sedar - in which the story of the exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt is retold and in some ways reenacted (for example, by eating bitter herbs) as part a ceremonial dinner.
This year, our primary celebration for gay men of Jewish Faith will be Camp Nehirim, Aug 3-7.
