Downtown Seder 2016 featuring David Broza, Peter Yarrow & more!
Superstar Israeli singer-songwriter David Broza 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 New Yorkers in City Winery’s wildly imaginative and interactive 16th annual Passover Seder dinner, hosted by City Winery founder Michael Dorf.

The 2016 Downtown Seder will feature guests seated at elegant, long 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 or vegetarian meal prepared by City Winery Executive Chef Michael Jeanty.

What makes the Downtown 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 Downtown 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 $75, $105, $135. Vegetarian and kosher-style meals are included, with a Glatt Kosher option available for an additional $25.00/person.
