Passover, Pesach in Hebrew, is among the most popular and celebrated of Jewish holidays. Families gather, share favorite foods and retell the story of God's deliverance of the Israelites from Egypt. The themes of freedom and liberation, spring and renewal distinguish the holiday and its rituals. The combination of tradition and gathering creates lasting and powerful memories that instill Judaism in our children and nurture our souls.
A highlight of Temple's celebration is our congregational Second Seder prepared by Simone Sofian and a handful of dedicated volunteers. Our Seder is a complete meal, from gefilte fish, hardboiled eggs and matzo ball soup through baked chicken, salad, carrots and potatoes to dessert — the most amazing Passover cookies and brownies you've ever tasted! Rabbi Sofian leads the service. Everyone participates. We eat well. It's a great evening.
