Area residents invited to community Passover Seder

Area residents are invited to attend a community Passover Seder, which Chabad will be hosting at 7 p.m. Friday at the Steamboat Grand, 2300 Mount Werner Circle.

“Passover is not simply a celebration of the historic liberation of an ancient people,” said Rabbi Mintz of Chabad. “Passover is about our own personal liberation — physically, emotionally and spiritually. Passover inspires us to break free from the shackles re-straining us from reaching new heights — in our lives, relationships and connection with God.”

Chabad’s community seder is part of a global Passover campaign that began in 1954, when the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of blessed memory, considered the most influential rabbi in modern history, launched the Shmurah Matzah initiative as part of an effort to create awareness and promote observance of the holiday.

This year an estimated four million hand-baked Shmurah Matzahs will be distributed by the Chabad-Lubavitch movement. In addition, millions of Passover guides in 17 languages will educate people on the meaning and practices of the holiday.

All are welcome to join the community seder, regardless of Jewish affiliation or background. Reservations can be made online at
