Friendseder™ Community Brunch

Sunday, April 7, 2024 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

$45.00 – $85.00

This event is IN PERSON at Zingerman’s Greyline

Friendseder is to Passover what Friendsgiving is to Thanksgiving. If you’re reading this, you’re a friend of the Deli’s, so whether or not you celebrate Passover, we’d love to have you join us at our Friendseder Community Brunch!

At a Friendsgiving, you might expect to see twists on classic Thanksgiving dishes, and Friendseder is no different (except with classic Jewish dishes, of course). Friendseder is celebrated before the start of Passover, so together we’ll enjoy a 4-course brunch that’s inspired by the Seder plate without needing to follow Passover dietary rules. The menu will include dishes like Lamb or Vegetarian Tagine and other surprises from our kitchen. And we wouldn’t forget fun brunch beverages—your ticket includes mocktail pairings! Or, enjoy the cash bar during your brunch. Cheers! (Or rather, l’chaim!)

This is our third annual Friendseder, and we’re very excited to once again be partnering with The Well to bring their initiative to our Ann Arbor community. Your hosts for the brunch will be Zingerman’s Event Coordinator Tessie Ives-Wilson and The Well’s Executive Director Rabbi Jeff Stombaugh. Together, they will lead you on a guided tour of this special brunch menu—the tastes, products, ingredients, meaning, ritual, and traditions.

The Well is a Detroit area non-profit with a mission to create and foster an accessible, inclusive, and relationship-driven community. They use Jewish wisdom and rituals to help foster community, but you don’t have to be Jewish to join the community! Friendseder Community Brunch welcomes everyone to the table to learn about Passover rituals and traditions, but also encourages you to make the holiday your own!

Please note: This menu will contain dairy, fish, gluten and nuts. We can make adjustments to the menu to accommodate these allergens or dietary preferences, but Zingerman’s Deli is not a kosher facility and we cannot provide kosher meals for this event.
