Jewish Community Center of Washington, DC

12th Annual National Rainbow Seder
Human Rights Campaign

FY19 Rainbow Seder


Join GLOE and Rabbi Avi Strausberg of the Hadar Institute for this 12th annual event to celebrate Passover through an LGBTQ lens.

Now in its twelfth year, the National Rainbow Seder is one of the nation’s largest and longest-running Passover seders for the queer Jewish community and its allies, co-presented by GLOE - GLBTQ Outreach & Engagement at the Edlavitch DCJCC and the Human Rights Campaign’s Religion & Faith program. Hosted inside the Equality Center ballroom at the HRC headquarters in Washington, DC, this year’s program will feature a full Passover seder complete with a specially-commissioned Haggadah (the Jewish text containing the Passover story) retelling the traditional tale of Jewish triumphs of resistance alongside the hard-fought progress made by the LGBTQ equality movement over the past decade since the National Rainbow Seder's inception.

We’ll enjoy a special Passover meal as we read our own Haggadah and perform its festive rituals with the Jewish LGBTQ community and our friends.
