sederplatePesach, 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.


Join fellow Temple Beth Shalom members and their families as we celebrate Passover. We will read the Haggadah, sing songs, eat a potluck meal, and enjoy the company of friends both old and new!
Bring your own seder plate you can fill with ritual items supplied by the temple.
When: Saturday, March 31, 2018, 5:00-8:00 p.m, Temple Beth Shalom Social Hall
Who: Temple Beth Shalom members and their families
Cost: $10 per person for ages 13 and up, $5 for each child ages 3-12

Temple Beth Shalom’s Second-Night Congregational Passover Seder is one of our few members-only events of the year.
