Described as “a cross between summer camp in the Catskills and a progressive jazz concert” by the New York Times, “the coolest downtown seder in NYC” by TimeOut and “the hippest Seder on Earth” by The Forward, the annual Downtown Seder has for more than 25 years gathered musicians, artists, entertainers, politicians, comedians and thinkers. The Downtown Seder is an always unique, often irreverent and frequently disagreeable retelling of the Exodus, as well as a soapbox. Because of the requirement for social distancing, the 2020 Downtown Seder was held virtually online and is available to stream for our viewing pleasure. This year’s participants included:

  • Al Franken, singing from his shower
  • Comedian Lewis Black
  • Sex therapist Dr. Ruth
  • David Broza
  • Peter Yarrow
  • Max Weinberg, drummer for Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band
  • Comedian Seth Herzog does the 10 plagues
  • Comedians Sandra Berhnard and Joel Chasnoff
  • Harvey Fierstein
  • Judy Gold
  • Perry Ferrell
  • Arrested Development

There are many reviews of the Downtown Seder on the internet. You can find two at TimeOut and My Jewish Learning, or just jump in and start watching. Enjoy!! 

NOTE: PORTIONS OF THIS SEDER WOULD BE RATED PG OR HIGHER.
