Journeys to Liberation – Transcendence, Acceptance, and Freedom to Reveal Our True Identities

April 3 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

This event is sold out.

A Women’s Seder with the Jewish Community Center of the North Shore and Congregation Shirat Hayam

Come together to share stories of our foremothers to spiritually prepare for the holiday through prayer, song, story, dance, food, and conversation. Actors from the Braid, formerly the Jewish Women’s Theater, will guide us through the Seder by telling heartwarming stories of self-discovery by Jewish women from different backgrounds to bring a creative and modern twist on an ancient tradition.

This event is open to any self-identified woman connected with the Jewish community or who wishes to connect. You do not need to be a member of JCCNS or CSH to attend.

$5 to attend, box lunch from Adea's Mediterranean Kitchen included – for more information, contact Janis Knight at 

Sponsored by Jewish Women’s Endowment Fund and Sunrise Auto

About the Braid

The Braid, formerly Jewish Women’s Theatre, creates a legacy by inspiring Jewish stories that connect us all. As the national go-to Jewish story company that pioneered a new art form called Salon Theatre, they give voice to diverse contemporary stories grounded in Jewish culture and experience that can be performed anywhere. Since 2008, the growing collection of 62 original salon theatre shows have illuminated varied themes like forgiveness, food, family, and freedom. Seminal shows newly spotlight women rabbis, Persian, Latinx, and Russian Jews, and Jews of Color. The Braid also commissioned and produced Ovation-recommended Not That Jewish, by Monica Piper, which ran over 16 months in LA and then off-Broadway. Other hit shows include Rain Pryor’s Fried Chicken & Latkes and Vicki Juditz’s Ovation-recommended Sacred Resistance. They ensure the next generation has an artistic platform and community to explore and celebrate Jewish cultural heritage through our NEXT Emerging Artists program. The Braid tours across the country, and is accessible globally via Zoom performances, its podcast AudioNosh, streaming on ChaiFlicks, and other online platforms.
