Passover 2020

 

What is your ideal budget?

Manhattan, New York City

Passover Seders between $0-40


Ohel Ayalah

https://ohelayalah.org/events/seders

Due to Corona virus, in-person Passover Seders have been cancelled. Check the website for more information as they will most likely be having an online seder.

This organization looks like an amazing place to celebrate Passover and the High Holidays. They seem welcoming to all, and for Passover they have two seders: (1) the first night is for all ages and (2) the second seder is geared toward those in their 20s and 30s. Prices range from $36-$80 per person depending on what you are able to pay.

This organization does not have a permanent location, but their services and Passover Seders meet at the Prince George Ballroom, 15 E 27th Street Manhattan, New York City. 

Ohel Ayalah has backing from a number of organizations that aren’t affiliated with a particular Jewish moment, but they seem to be more on the traditional side, meaning the services will uphold the classic Jewish service you would find in a conservative synagogue. However, they have a very strong focus on inclusion, being accessible to anyone no matter their Jewish affiliation or upbringing, and a strong egalitarian focus.

I should also say that this seder is not free. They have a discounted and student rate. The pricing is to cover things like food and wine, which is not needed for the high holidays. Their high holiday services are completely free. I have not attended services here but I was told by a friend that she had a lovely time, and I look forward to attending an event in 2020.
