Thanksgiving is more than just Turkey Day. It’s a day for Giving Thanks for the abundance in our lives, as the Hebrew word “הודו” tells us. It’s a day for appreciating the gifts of the food we share in community, and the hard work that is invested into growing nourishing food for us everywhere. 

The Seder is a map for Jewish ritual, where we tell our story and ask questions to apply history into our own lives. We’ll use the map of the Passover Seder with a Thanksgiving tweak, bringing in ritual, music, song and delicious traditional foods to celebrate our gratitude for abundance, and talk about the tough stuff, together with our Jewish and indigenous brothers and sisters.

Eat delicious kosher foods from our sustainable partners and organic farms. Discover new rituals from the Jewish and indigenous traditions. Explore deep conversations about our responsibility to this land, to our heritage, and to people today who don’t have food to eat. Learn about where our food comes from and how we can nourish ourselves better. And meet like-minded community in Brooklyn to celebrate our Thanksgiving before heading back home. Best of all, you’ll come home equipped with a Haggadah of resources and stories to share.

All religions and cultural backgrounds welcome.
