City Winery is proud to announce its annual Downtown Seder, taking place on Thursday, March 25, two days ahead of Passover, live from City Winery Pier 57 and at-home streamed around the globe.

The highly anticipated interpretive Seder will feature blessings from four Mayoral candidates including Andrew Yang, Scott Stringer, Ray McGuire, and Kathryn Garcia who will speak on one of the four glasses of wine; comedic performances by Lewis Black, Judy Gold, and Mark Normand; musical performances by David Broza, Idan Raichel, Marc Cohn, Perry Farrell, Max Weinberg, and Speech of Arrested Development. There will also be greetings from Dr. Ruth, Al Franken and more.

Last year over 4,000 people tuned into City Winery’s online event and the YouTube video has grown to over 33,000 views. This annual tradition goes back thousands of years, but for the past 27 years Michael Dorf has produced an artist/celebrity interpretive Seder that transcends Judaism. Dorf provides a unique presentation taking themes within the timeless Passover story of tyrants and governments harboring lethal hatred for outsiders and immigrants, the liberation struggles, the histories of oppression, bigotry, anti-Semitism and racial injustice, even pandemics and plagues and makes it relevant for our time. This unprecedented gathering will come together again to provoke new thinking in a world hungry for order and unity.
