Global Holiday Celebrations, 1990-2013, undated


Scope and Contents

Sub-series 3: Global Holiday Celebrations contains materials related to Project Kesher’s global celebrations of Jewish holidays, a key part of the organization's programming. Materials include notes, correspondence, logistics, photographs, and bound haggadahs. Materials are arranged chronologically by year, then by holiday. A complete box and folder listing is available upon request.

Beginning in 1995, Project Kesher has worked with women around the world to organize global celebrations of major Jewish holidays. The first Global Women's Holiday Celebration was a pre-Passover seder conducted on the same day in countries all over the world, featuring Project Kesher's newly created women's haggadah. Later that same year, they celebrated Sukkot on a global scale as well, bringing together women all over the world in a uniquely Jewish context. Materials in this sub-series stretch from early brainstorming notes in 1990 to global celebrations in 2013. Of particular interest are the wealth of photographs from the 1995 and 1996 seders, as well as the annual haggadahs created and reworked for each new seder.
