A Hackney and Islington non-religious church is hosting a free virtual Seder for Passover.
Passover is a Jewish holiday which lasts for eight days and marks the biblical Exodus of the Jewish people from Egypt.
To celebrate Seder, a traditional Passover meal observed during the holiday, New Unity church is hosting a virtual ceremony on March 27.
Andy Pakula, non-religious Minister at New Unity, said: “As last year, our Passover Seder takes place this year in an atmosphere of lockdown.
“But we’re hopeful that community can grow and strengthen as we ﬁnd other ways to connect.

The online event will see the minister re-tell the ancient Passover story and lead the group in speaking and singing.
