5:00 pm Cocktail Hour (Cash Bar) / 6:00 - 9:00 pm Seder
Last year over 200 people showed up for our sold-out Philadelphia Seder, a new Gershman Y tradition that celebrates the themes and holiday of Passover through the rich contributions of the area’s artists, musicians, and dancers. This year showcases an all-new lineup including Master Storyteller and Narrator, Charlotte Blake Alston, Magician Ran'D Shine, Singer Songwriter Ross Levy and more. Our headline performer is the nationally acclaimed, local dance company Ballet X. This year, we’re moving to the Bellevue to accommodate even more people. This is one Seder you won’t want to miss.
Dinner is kosher-style, fish/vegetarian and prepared by the Bellevue’s Catering Services.
