Passover begins on March 27, with a week of celebrations and special foods. Attend a Passover Seder virtually or in person, FREE or for a nominal fee.
Passover celebrates the freedom of the Jews from slavery in Egypt, led by Moses.
You know the story. And if you don’t, watch the iconic movie, with Charlton Heston as Moses, Yul Brynner as the Egyptian Pharoah, and the dramatic parting of the Red Sea.
As with most Jewish festivals, the basic story line is this – they tried to kill us, they failed, we survived, let’s give thanks and let’s eat.
The first two nights of Passover are celebrated with special Seder dinners, with traditional rituals and traditional foods. This year, there’s also a third Seder night, from at least one organizer.
Attend these Passover seders, either in person or virtually:
