14th Annual National Rainbow Seder
Join GLOE and Rabbi Eliana Fischel of Washington Hebrew Congregation for this annual event to celebrate Passover through an LGBTQ lens.
Now in its fourteenth 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, is presented by GLOE - GLBTQ Outreach & Engagement at the Edlavitch DCJCC and our 2022 partners, Human Rights Campaign Foundation, Embassy of Israel, Israeli House, Bet Mishpachah Congregation, Washington Hebrew Congregation and Adas Israel Congregation.
Hosted outside at the Edlavitch DCJCC under a large tent, this year’s program will focus on the theme of Emerging Together - and Still Not Free and 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.
