Passover Resources

Passover (Pesach in Hebrew) is a major Jewish spring festival celebrating freedom and family as we remember the Exodus from Egypt more than 3,000 years ago.
The main observances of this holiday center around a special service called the seder, which includes a festive meal; the prohibition on eating leavened foods (called chametz), and the eating of matzah.

On the 15th day of Nisan in the Hebrew calendar, Jews gather with family and friends in the evening to read from a book called the Haggadah, meaning “telling,” which contains the order of prayers, rituals, readings, and songs for the Passover seder. The Haggadah helps us retell the events of the Exodus, so that each generation may learn and remember this story that is so central to Jewish life and history. (Lightly adapted from ReformJudaism.org)

For an excellent gathering of seder tips, recipes, family activities, and more… check out  ReformJudaism’s Passover page.

Two Haggadahs we like… A Night of Questions or The Open Door.
