Though we have the construction delay pushing things back for a month, The Freedom Seder will still take place on the second floor of Ponce City Market above Williams-Sonoma, just steps away from our construction site.
Superstar Israeli singer-songwriter David Broza, The Blind Boys of Alabama’s Ricky McKinnie, and singer & activist Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary are among the all-star line-up of performers and VIPs who will dine among guests and leading Atlantans in City Winery’s wildly imaginative and interactive Freedom Seder dinner, hosted by City Winery founder Michael Dorf.
The Freedom Seder will feature guests seated at elegant family-style tables, each set with the traditional accoutrements, including Seder plate and Matzoh. Performers, who are seated with guests throughout the room, will creatively expound on various sections of the Passover Haggadah (Seder text), which has been specially developed for this night.
In an approximately 90-minute program, all of the customary traditions will be followed, including drinking of four glasses of wine (produced by City Winery), discussing the four different children, reciting the four questions, and eating a delicious kosher-style meal by City Winery Executive Chef Jeffrey McGar.
What makes The Freedom Seder different from all other Seders is the addition of artists each offering their unique interpretation of the important lessons from the timeless Exodus story – the universal message of the journey from slavery to freedom.
“The Freedom Seder is specifically being held prior to the start of Passover so that guests might bring the inspiration into their homes and make their own Seder dinner more relevant,” said Dorf.
A limited number of tickets for the City Winery Seder are available, priced at $100 and $145. Kosher-style meals are included, with a Glatt Kosher option available for an additional $25.00/person.
