Passover Expo and Amram Scholar Series Lecture

Alan Zweibel

Washington Hebrew Congregation
Sunday, March 18, 2018
10:30 AM — 12:00 PM
3935 Macomb Street NW
Washington, DC 20016 United States

Free Event

As those awaiting matzah ball soup well know, a Passover seder can seem to last as long as the Exodus from Egypt. To bring added life and laughter to your observance of the holiday, three award-winning humorists — Alan Zweibel, Dave Barry, and Adam Mansbach — have created a hilarious parody of the traditional Haggadah, For This We Left Egypt, that will guarantee your seder will never lag.

One of the authors, five-time Emmy award-winning writer Alan Zweibel, will join us for a day of pre-Passover laughter, learning, and fun that begins with an Amram talk and ends with more recipes than you can fit on your table. Before or after the lecture, come to our Passover Expo where you can sample new foods, pick up some interesting readings and projects for the children, find some new Judaica for your seder table, and so much more.

Mr. Zweibel, the Amram speaker, is an original Saturday Night Live writer, collaborated with Billy Crystal on the Tony Award-winning play 700 Sundays, and won the Thurber Prize for his novel The Other Shulman. Currently, he is writing the book for the Broadway musical version of the movie Field of Dreams.
