Chabad of Boulder Hosting Communal Seder

Passover tableFew Jewish holidays evoke the same warm sentiments as Passover, with its celebration of freedom, its evocation of childhood memories, and the story Jews have been telling for 3,000 years.

Tradition and Halacha (Jewish law) require the replacement of all leavened foods (those containing yeast or other rising or leavening agents) with matzo, the telling of the story of the exodus from Egypt and the creation of a free Jewish people, the eating of various foods representing aspects of that journey, and doing so in a specific order or seder, from which comes the name of the special events celebrated at this time each year.

Bringing the warmth and tradition of Passover to the Boulder County Jewish community, Chabad Lubavitch of Boulder County is once again hosting a community Seder on the first night of Passover and an Intergenerational Passover Celebration on April 17th that everyone is welcome to attend, everyone will be able to understand, everyone can participate in, and everyone can enjoy.

All Jews, regardless of affiliation or background, are encouraged to join the mouth-watering, multi-course feast, accented with delicious wine, handmade matzo, traditional melodies, and lively dialogue on Monday, April 14th at 7:30 pm at Lubavitch of Boulder County (4900 Sioux Drive, Boulder). Space is limited and reservations are on a first-come first-served basis. The cost is only $39.00 per person.  Click here to register.

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

Whether or not you’ve begun to clean the chamtez (leavened food) out your home yet, when you’re done, if you want to participate in the tradition of selling your chametz so it can be ritually burned, Rabbi Scheiner will buy it from you. Contact for details before Sunday afternoon, April 13th.
