19th Annual Downtown Seder at City Winery DC

Performers include David Broza, Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington DC, BETTY, Jill Sobule and more TBA.

Our Downtown Seder 2019 features an all-star lineup of performers and VIPs who will dine among guests and will lead Washington D.C. in City Winery’s wildly imaginative and interactive 19th annual Passover Seder dinner, hosted by City Winery founder Michael Dorf.

The 2019 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 2 hours program, all of the customary traditions will be followed, including drinking four glasses of wine (produced by City Winery), discussing the four different children, reciting the four questions, and eating a delicious vegetarian meal (kosher option avail per request) prepared by City Winery’s Executive Chef.

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.
