To Life, To Life, L'Khaim
Date and time for our Annual Third Seyder in 2021 coming soon!
In this time of uncertainty and plague, please join us to celebrate the strength of our community, our resilience, and our care for each other.
This global crisis has revealed our interconnectedness — from Toronto to Wet'suwet'en, to Grassy Narrows, Palestine, Italy, China, and South Africa. We are in this together. This year, this Passover, we celebrate the creativity, social solidarity and community care unleashed by this crisis. We look forward to next year — In Person, and to the possibility of a more humane and just world.
Please join us in community! We have room for 100 devices (laptops, phones, tablets, phone-ins) at our Third Seyder. We will be joined by our favourite musicians, David Wall and Marilyn Lerner!
This year's Seyder is free, but if you are able, instead of purchasing your Seyder tickets please consider donating to our UJPO/MWS Passover Fundraiserto help us get through this difficult moment for our organization and Shule:www.winchevskycentre.org/donate
