This colorful booklet lists all the ritual items needed for the Passover table. The history and significance of each item on the seder plate is explained, as are the customs that have been handed down through the generations in different centers of Jewish life.
InterfaithFamily and the Workmen's Circle are celebrating Tu B'Shevat, the Jewish New Year for the trees, and you're invited!
Join us for a FREE afternoon filled with food, music, art projects and social justice.
A great way for Jewish professionals and volunteers who work with and provide programming for people in interfaith relationships to locate resources and trainings to build more welcome into their Jewish communities; connect with and learn from each other; and publicize and enhance their programs and services.
Interfaith couples, newlyweds, brides, and grooms: You are invited to join us for a special event—just for you—at Spertus, Chicago's center for Jewish learning and culture.
In Jewish practice, the concept of hiddur mitzvah (beautification of the commandments) is often realized by having and using beautiful objects to observe Jewish holidays and special occasions.
Since many of you are newly bringing Judaism into your own homes, our friends at Spertus have offered to share their expertise on the objects that can beautify your own celebrations.
Learn about customs associated with Hanukkah menorahs, Seder plates, mezuzot, and more. See how contemporary artists, locally and around the world, are reinterpreting traditional ritual items with exciting new materials and designs.
Tours will be offered of the award-winning architecture of the Spertus building. Spertus Kosher Catering (a partnership with Wolfgang Puck) will provide refreshments. And the Spertus Shop will be open until 8 pm. As a welcome from Spertus, you’ll enjoy 10% off any purchases made that evening.
Free, but reservations requested. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org by June 18.
See you there!
$10 parking available at the Essex Inn, 2 blocks south of Spertus, with Spertus validation
