Passover Seder NYC
Passover seder at JCP in 2023 with Rabbi Deena Silverstone.

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 to celebrate the holiday and find something that's right for you — from social events to seders. 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. Note that some events have early-bird signups.


And if you don't have a Haggadah yet — check out mine, a NYC-themed one, "Don't Fu-haggadah-boud-it."
