Join us for our annual tradition: The 2nd Seder at Russ & Daughters Cafe! 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. This year our seder will celebrate the lives of the Yiddish poets and partisans who exemplified faith and fortitude during the years of the Second World War.

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 and Navy Yard, we’re also looking forward to welcoming people into our own space to celebrate.

Every year we invite a friend of the Russ & Daughters family to lend their unique voice and talents to lead our seder. The Russ family is thrilled to have Andy Bachman as our host 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 serving as Executive Director of the Jewish Community Project Downtown.

A portion of the proceeds from every ticket will be donated to the Belarus Holocaust Memorials Project.
