Jump to a Seder…

Pesach Hospitality

This is the first time in three years we have the chance to open our homes on seder night for those who are alone for Pesach. If you have one or two spaces at your table for first or second night, please let us know by emailing info@emanuel.org.au

Sale of chametz

During Pesach it is not permitted to own any chametz. To avoid having to throw or give away the chametz that we may have in our possession, we sell it to a non-Jewish person for the duration of the festival. Often people will authorise a person within the community to sell the chametz on their behalf.

Omer Inspirations

Do you wish to receive inspirational emails during the Omer period, between the festivals of Pesach and Shavuot 15th April till 3rd June?

Pesach Medidation

We explore spiritual themes for Pesach through meditation.

Free and online.

The classes are recorded for those who can’t make it to the class in person online.

Woman’s Seder

Women played a central role in the events of the Exodus story. Every year, women around the world gather for women’s seders, the chance to celebrate the women of the Exodus and consider how the themes of freedom and slavery apply to us, as women. We have a unique seder we created ourselves.
