Women’s Interfaith Model Passover Seder

The National Council of Jewish Women in Australia (Vic) together with Jewish Aid will be hosting a Women’s Interfaith Model Passover Seder, the purpose of which is to provide opportunities for people of diverse faiths to specifically learn about Jewish festivals and traditions in a participatory experience, while at the same time promoting friendship and understanding.

We would like our participants to be girls about the age of 12 (Bat Mitzvah age) together with their mothers (or significant female such as grandmothers or aunts). In this way, we will be introducing young girls to interfaith dialogue, as well as sharing the richness of intergenerational relationships and the passing on of family and faith traditions.

We envisage Jewish, Muslim, Christian (of different denominations) and other faiths being represented in significant female-daughter pairs. We are seeking girls (about 12 years of age) and their mothers (or significant female), who would like to participate in such an event. (Unfortunately we only have space for one adult per student).  The evening includes a light kosher vegetarian meal incorporating some Passover/Pesach dishes. Participants will also receive a booklet explaining Passover.
