We wish the members of our Jewish community a Happy Passover that begins at sundown Friday night.
The observance continues for eight days and commemorates the Israelites being freed by God from slavery in Egypt in biblical times.
Passover commences with the First Seder, which is a special dinner that includes the recitation of the Kiddush, the Motzi, and other blessings in Hebrew. The story of Passover is retold during the Seder and the youngest person at the table recites, “The Four Questions.”
We wish our Jewish friends a joyous celebration of this important holiday.
