Passover: a joyous and gay festival

Passover (Pesach) begins Friday. We are hosting our Seder dinner on the second night, Saturday. That evening, a room full of men, 21 of them, will be sitting down and retelling the ancient story of freedom and liberation and having a wonderful meal.

I have written and posted about our gay men's Passover Seders many times. Here is a collection of some of my favorite informative posts.

The story of liberation. In addition to telling the Exodus story, we also tell and remember the lives and contributions of gay Jews.

On our Seder table we have both the traditional Seder plate and a GLBT Seder plate.

Some of the readings we incorporate into our service around the table.
