Pesach 2018

This year, Passover (Pesach) begins on Friday evening, March 30th. In times past, we have met together as a community and had a large Passover celebration. However, as we have grown, it has become more difficult and expensive to continue this practice. Furthermore, as we read the account of the first Passover, Exodus 12 states:

Tell the whole community of Israel that on the tenth day of this month each man is to take a lamb for his family, one for each household. If any household is too small for a whole lamb, they must share one with their nearest neighbor, having taken into account the number of people there are. You are to determine the amount of lamb needed in accordance with what each person will eat. Exodus 12:3-4

Rather than the entire community meeting together at one location to celebrate Pesach, we will meet in our homes, sharing with our "neighbors" so that all are able to enjoy a meaningful set-apart time. This is how Passover has been celebrated for the last 3,500 years. With this in mind, we want to make sure that everyone in our community is included and that no one is left out of the opportunity to celebrate this feast day (Hebrew: mo'ed).

We are developing teaching, instruction and guidance for those who would like a better understanding of how to host and conduct a Passover Seder. (By the way, the Hebrew word seder means "arrangement" or "order.") Here is our list of resources so far. Each week, we will be adding to this list of resources that you may find helpful as you prepare to conduct your own Pesach Seder.

We're looking forward to a great Pesach!
