Passover is coming! Ever since I started making a Haggadah in 2021, I'm all about helping people celebrate this holiday, whether you go home every year or need somewhere to go.
Check out upcoming Passover events and seders in New York City so you can get ready for the holiday and find something that's right for you, whether it's comedy, art, cooking, happy hour, or a musical seder. Some of the events below are specifically for 20s/30s, some are for everyone. If I missed an event, email me at hi @ danielleindoodles.com.
And if you don't have a Haggadah yet, well, I have a great one for you, and it's NYC themed!
