Passover this year began the evening of Wednesday, April 5, 2023. The holiday is customarily observed with a Passover seder—a special dinner richly interwoven with ritual elements. One of the most powerful aspects of the Passover seder is that, at multiple points throughout the experience, we envision ourselves as being connected across generations.

In an effort to create more personal connections within our community and congregation, Temple Beth Shalom assisted members with seder matching in 2023—connecting Temple Beth Shalom members who would like a place at a seder table with those members who would like to host them.

Because of our focus on striving to make sure all members who would like a seat at a home Passover seder have that opportunity, Temple Beth Shalom did not host a second-night seder at the temple this year.

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.
