Passover in the Desert

60 strong, adults and children of all ages, hailing from San Francisco, SoBay, EastBay, East East Bay, Los Angeles, New York and Israel, celebrated Passover in the desert.

The event symbolized the Mishmash community mini-exodus as a reminder that we CAN pack up our necessities and go to a different place where we can build a home, share meals, games, learn about our Jewish tradition, thoughts and reflections and feel free to do and be whatever we want.

The event was a joint effort by two Young Adult Leadership projects – RU-JU-LA in Los Angeles and MishMash in San Francisco.

Following the event, one participant told eJP, “The event was wonderfully put together with a lot of care and planning. I personally had a great time getting away from the civilizations, celebrating Passover, living simple life as part of the community and meeting wonderful new people.”

RU-JU-LA is a partnership initiative of Genesis Philanthropy Group, Jewish Agency and The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles. Mishmash is a joint initiative of Genesis Philanthropy Group, Jewish Agency and Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund (San Francisco).
