Celebration of PassoverBOULDER, COLORADO: The festival of Passover honors the biblical departure of the Jews from years of slavery in Egypt and is celebrated with a ritual meal called a Seder. The word Seder means “order” in Hebrew and the 15 steps of the Passover Seder ritual must be performed in a specific order, with explicit prayers and particular foods accompanying each one. 

While there are numerous holidays, festivals, and ritual observances in the Jewish calendar each year, for some reason, few evoke the deep sentiments associated with Passover. No matter how observant (or not) an individual may be throughout the rest of the year, something about Passover brings Jews home to their traditions. 

This year, as every year, all Jews, regardless of affiliation, background, or age are invited to join the Boulder County Center for Judaism’s Seder on April 22nd. The Seder there is warm and welcoming – and understandable, no matter the attendee’s level of Jewish education or practice. 

Everyone is encouraged to attend, participate, and enjoy the evening-long event, which includes explanations, discussions, songs, and a delicious home-made meal, as well as lots of wine and hand-made matzo. All Glatt Kosher of course. 

The Seder is Friday, April 22, beginning at 8 pm and running until late into the night. Space is limited and history says that this annual event fills up quickly, so those who wish to attend should reserve now. There is also a Seder on Saturday, April 23 beginning at 8 pm. 

COST:                                                      

  • $25 per adult, $18 per child before April 10
  • $36 per adult, $18 per child after April 10 

Please note that no one will be turned away for lack of funds. 

In addition, those who wish to order Shmurah matzo for their own tables and/or arrange to sell their chometz should do so as soon as possible.
