5th Annual National Rainbow Seder
GLOE - Kurlander Program for GLBT Outreach & Engagement
Sunday, April 1
5:00 pm | Drinks and hors d'oeuvres
Led by Rabbi Toby Manewith
Join us for this national event that is part-ritual, part-celebration, part-feast and part-conversation! This year we will focus on Freedom's Heroes, the leaders of freedom and equality movements throughout history.
This Passover, indulge in delicious food as we read our own Haggadah, specially created for the occasion, and perform the festive rituals with the Jewish LGBT community and our friends.
This celebration of freedom always sells out!
Get your tickets early—this celebration of freedom always sells out!

Frequently Asked Questions
I'm interested in coming, but worried because I don't know anyone. Can you help?
What about dinner? Is it kosher?
Since this event takes place before Passover actually starts, questions of kitniyot (and Ashkenazi versus Sephardic traditions, etc) shouldn't be a concern. However, we're always happy to answer any concerns.
Is it appropriate to bring kids?
To attend, do I have to be LGBTQ? Jewish? Observant? Old? Young? Ashkenazi? Sephardic?
In fact, every year, we have a beautiful mix of people. Some are queer and Jewish, some are not. All are welcome, and (if they choose) can easily participate in a variety of ways - singing, reading, discussing ideas, or just generally being among the community.
GLOE is proud to have wonderful co-sponsorships for the National Rainbow Seder from the Human Rights Campaign: Religion & Faith Program and Congregation Bet Mishpachah.
GLOE is funded in part by a grant from The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington to support Social Action Programming.
