If you’ve ever contemplated Passover’s fifth question—“Why on this night isn’t the food better?”—we hope to see you at our annual second-night Passover seder. We’ve enlisted the brightest stars of NYC’s new Jewish food world, and thrown in a little Borscht Belt humor for good measure. We’ll also introduce the new Bronfman Haggadah, for what is sure to be a memorable, if unkosher, evening.

* Please note special time.
