Chabad 19th Annual Community Passover Seders--Litchfield

04/03/2015 to 04/04/2015

Route 202, Litchfield, CT 06759.

19th ANNUAL COMMUNITY PASSOVER SEDERS--"Relive the Passover Exodus" with Rabbi Joseph I. Eisenbach. Few Jewish holidays evoke the same warm sentiments as Passover. Memories of family and friends gathered as the four cups of wine are poured, the four questions asked and the Matzah served, all contribute to Passover's popularity in the Jewish community. Bringing the warmth and tradition of this festival to the Northwest CT Community, Chabad is inviting all residents to participate in community Seders to be held on Friday night, April 3, and again on Saturday night, April 4. The Seders take participants through the wondrous liberation of our ancestors from Egyptian bondage, while sharing the relevance and beauty of the age old festival in our modern lives. Included in the Seder will be a delectable catered dinner paired with a variety of fine imported wines and handmade round "Shmurah"' Matzah from Israel. "Passover is not simply a celebration of the historic liberation of an ancient people," said Rabbi Joseph Eisenbach, Co-Director of Chabad Lubavitch of Northwest CT. "Passover is about our own personal liberation - physically, emotionally and spiritually. Passover inspires us to break free from the shackles restraining us from reaching new heights - in our lives, relationships and connection with G-d." All are welcome to join the community Seder, regardless of Jewish affiliation or background.
