Second-Night Congregational Passover Seder
Saturday, April 16, 4:30-6:00 p.m.

Two ways to participate:

* In-person at the temple for Temple Beth Shalom members and their loved ones: register here

Livestream option available for all (no RSVP needed)

We are thrilled to invite you to join Rabbi Freedman and Cantor Gostein for our congregational Second-Night Passover Seder, conducted inside the temple building. 

Although the temple will not serve a meal during the seder this year, we will provide pre-packaged seder supplies and kosher grape juice for in-person attendees, and Haggadah (digital version available online) for all to fully engage ritually in the seder. Feel free to bring your own wine. If you feel that you or your children may need snacks during the event, please bring kosher-for-Passover options from home. 

Livestream viewers, be sure to gather your seder supplies ahead of time so you can follow along.

About Passover

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). On the fifteenth day of Nisan in the Hebrew calendar, Jews gather with family and friends in the evening to read from a book called the hagaddah, meaning "telling," which contains the order of prayers, rituals, readings and songs for the Passover seder. Today, the holiday is a celebration of freedom and family.
