Passover

Mishkan Shalom offers an overflowing plate of gatherings, services and resources to help you prepare for and celebrate the Passover holiday and explore ways of Counting the Omer. See our full schedule and access all resources.

Seventh Night Jewish Mystical/Justice Seder at Mishkan with Rabbi Shawn
Sunday, April 28, 2024 • 20 Nisan 5784, 7pm

This Seder does not center around a meal (so please nosh beforehand!), rather it traces the journey out of oppression into liberation. On the last days of Passover we tune in to a sacred energy that allows us to put the finishing touches on our personal redemption, which began on the First and Second Night Seders. The mystical template is also the foundation for focusing on a variety of justice and liberation efforts we are engaged in as a community for the liberation of all. Join us for this inspiring and enlightening journey!

For more information or to RSVP, email Rabbi Shawn Zevit, RSVP deadline: Sunday, April 21st

Passover Songs, Poetry, Prayers & Readings

Freedom (Passover Poem)

by Rabbi Shawn Israel Zevit

Gathering the mixed multitudes in my soul
I rummage through my belongings
In preparation for leave-taking
What aspects of myself
Do I need to make the journey
What can I leave behind
To memory in the narrow places

Maybe this year, we will go out together
In broad daylight
Not in the still of the night
In no haste
Soul in Soul
Holding each other in loving compassion
Knowing we will cross together
Finding home at last
In the depth of Divine waters
That part willingly
On the shores of a wilderness

What if no one drowned this year
And You need not weep
For any of Your lost children
So, let’s not leave in haste this year
But see the blessings that even
The narrow places have offered us
For no place is without You
Freedom is in Your arms
Wherever we may be
On the journey.
