Last Night: Breaking Bread

 

Join us in Breaking Bread, to celebrate the LAST NIGHT of Passover and all things leavened. Pulling from the Persian tradition of Chamesi*, we invite you to come hungry, and get (b)ready for a festival of food. 

We’ll have MH ZH joining us from the Sunset Junction, Pop’s Bagels making on-site fresh bbbagels and bbbabka galore, too-beautiful-to-eat (but please do eat them) seasonal bites from AvocaToast LA, and beyond (read: beer, ‘booch, and more bread). 

LAST NIGHT: Breaking Bread is the culmination of a week-long Collective Escape, a pop-up Passover experience, powered by NuRoots, OneTable and the Federation's Y&S Nazarian Iranian Young Leadership Initiative. 

*Chamesi is a Persian-Jewish tradition that is exactly what it sounds like: a chametz-y celebration at the end of Passover. After 8 days of eliminating leavened items, to commemorate the collective escape of the Israelite slaves from Egypt, we celebrate with a chametz-centric festivity!

When: April 7 at 8 pm

Where: Blue Rooster Art Supplies

 4661 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90027

Parking: Parking extremely limited.  Please read all posted signs before parking.  Uber/Lyft/Ride share highly encouraged

Attire: Come as you are for a Saturday night!

Passover Portal: A Voyage Into Jewish Numerology, Sacred Geometry, and Cosmology

How can we escape from the confines of our everyday life? Let go of everything that seems to be weighing you down: digital devices, traffic, the responsibilities of your job as we explore the spiritual/mystical/numerological aspects of Passover. Light stretching and mindfulness exercises will allow you to become fully present as we break into small groups and discuss what freedom truly means to us and how we can feel more free in our daily lives. Light Passover-friendly bites, drinks plus music and good conversation will allow you to leave feeling lighter and with a new appreciation for this ancient holiday.
