Pesach, known as Passover in English, is a major Jewish spring festival, commemorating the Exodus from Egypt over 3,000 years ago. The ritual observance of this holiday centers around a special home service called the seder (meaning “order”) and a festive meal; the prohibition of chametz (leaven); and the eating of matzah (an unleavened bread).
Temple Israel strives to insure that anyone who wishes to may attend an in-home seder. If you are hosting a seder and can welcome a few more guests to your table, please let us know. If you would like to be a guest at someone else’s seder, let us know that too! We will do our best to make matches.
