THE PROGRAM

Why is this night different than all others? What is Miriam’s Table?

  – “Miriam took a timbrel in her hand, and all the women went out after her with timbrels and dancing.” 

Women are born into a legacy of enlightenment, devotion, creativity, passion, courage, leadership and faith; heroines throughout the generations.

Together on this night, we will retrace the steps of our sacred path to freedom, in a unique Seder experience as we weave beloved melodies and newly composed soulful music, with traditional and modern Passover elements and readings that tell our amazing story.

So, why is this night different than all others?

On this night, we are reserving a seat for you, our guests of honor at Miriam’s Table.
