Mimouna! A Post-Passover Moroccan Celebration

Urban Adamah and JIMENA invite you to a Saturday night Mimouna celebration on the farm. Mimouna is a traditional festival celebrated by Moroccan Jews the day after Passover, marking the return to eating chametz (leavened foods). Families open their homes to neighbors and friends, and fill their kitchen tables with an abundance of delicious sweets symbolizing fertility, joy, success, health, and prosperity. Mimouna is the beginning of the spring season and a time to celebrate friendship, community, coexistence, luck, and good fortune. We hope you will celebrate with us this year. All are welcome!

Schedule and Program:
7:30 pm – 10:30 pm: Traditional sweets & desserts (mufleta!), drinks (arak!), henna artists, moroccan lantern making, a kaftan photobooth, and more.
8:30 pm – 9:00 pm: Havdalah and Piyyutim (Jewish poetry)
9:00 pm – 9:30 pm: Dance performance and community dance lesson
9:30 pm – 10:30 pm: DJ and dance party

Tickets are available until sold out! $15 in advance, $20 at the door. No one turned away for lack of funds.
