More progressive, younger seders in San Francisco?

Seders in San Francisco? My partner and I are looking for a Passover gathering in the Bay Area that is focused on a younger (25-40), more progressive crowd. We're frankly a little tired of the same old seder with her family and want to meet more young people who, like us, may be actively constructing or redefining their Jewishness.

that was weird-- "I would email" is what it should say.

i've found it really challenging to connect with a young jewish community in the bay area - that said, there are a number of progressive jewish communities here. a few places to start:

- beyt tikkun is having a seder - this is the community run by michael lerner of tikkun magazine.

- generally has decent listings

- the jcc has a program called the hub which is aimed at a younger, more progressive crowd. they sometimes have holiday-related events...

feel free to email me if you want more info on what i've found here in sf.

Have you checked in with Sha'ar Zahav? They seem to be the youngest most progressive temple in San Francisco. Disclaimer - I've never been - but I keep meaning to as I've heard a bunch of good things.

Freaky, amberglow... I thought was some new emoticon I was supposed to know. These tips look like nice places, all of them. I dig Michael Lerner, and this year would be good one to hear him speak his mind. Still, I must confess that we are holding out hope for something that isn't in a community center and doesn't cost more than $30, unless there's a kick-ass DJ. I'll try contacting Sarah.
