Join us for our annual tradition: The 2nd Seder at Russ & Daughters Cafe! Every year we invite a friend of the Russ & Daughters family to lend their unique voice and talents to lead our seder. We are thrilled to have Andy Bachman and 3 generations of the Russ family as our hosts this year. Andy Bachman is a rabbi and community leader who has served communities in Brooklyn and at New York University during his career. He is now building a network of hyper-local storefront JCCs and establishing a civil rights memorial trail in New York City.
Passover is a time when we gather together with family, friends, and community to tell the story and sing the songs of the holiday. It’s a time to reflect on how historical issues of social justice and freedom relate to our lives today. The conduit for these stories and conversations is food and ritual.
Russ & Daughters has been a part of people’s Passover seders for generations: we’ve always prepared Passover specialties for pick-up, delivery, and shipping to our customers in their homes. And while we’ll be doing that this year at the shop, we’re also looking forward to welcoming people into our own space to celebrate.
