Few Jewish holidays evoke the same deep sentiments as Passover.
No matter how observant (or not) an individual is during the rest of the year, something about Passover brings Jews home to their traditions.
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.
All Jews, regardless of affiliation, background, or age are invited to join the Boulder County Center for Judaism’s celebrations on April 3rd and 4th. The Seder here is warm and welcoming – and comprehensible, no matter your 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 3, beginning at 7:30pm and running until late into the night. Space is limited and history says that this annual event fills up quickly, so you should reserve spots for you and your family now.
