Join us to celebrate the beginning of Spring and the end of Passover at our Moroccan Mimouna. Enjoy Moroccan sweets, live music, and dancing at this festive event, which embodies heritage, tradition, and community. All are welcome!

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.

The event is in memory of Zachary Nelson Z’l. Every year, Zachary would bring the Bay Area Jewish community and his family together for annual Moroccan Mimouna celebrations, which celebrated family, heritage, and community. Zach’s indelible mark remains on the hearts of all who knew him, and we are honored to continue his tradition.
