PASSOVER

Passover is a season of hope, renewal, and life. Nature’s spring is the backdrop for our people’s story of beginnings and freedom. Passover’s message and mood lift us up and encourage us to look ahead to better days and brighter times.

Anticipating Pesah , we are optimistic. In the course of time we may feel differently, but before our festival we look forward. As spring begins, we need Passover’s reminder. We are keepers of the vision, advocates for redemption.

Celebrating Pesah by gathering with family and friends around our Seder tables and joining in community, we attach our personal lives and concerns to the grand and potent moral principles for which God brought our ancestors out of Egypt.

Fortunate to be Jewish today, rooted in our people’s story, memories, and visions, we celebrate this Passover as a time of renewed goodness and hope. Information about preparing for Passover and how to change your kitchen over from hametz to matzah is available.

During our Festival Morning Services, we celebrate freedom and the personal meanings we find in Passover. We’ll invite for Torah honors synagogue friends who have experienced personal redemptions this year or, as we count the Omer, who anticipate significant moments in the coming weeks and, sadly, who are observing their first Yizkor Service in memory of a loved one as Passover concludes. Special kavanot, reflections, will introduce moments of prayer. We look forward to lovely and meaningful services throughout Pesah!
