Temple Kol Shalom, a reform Jewish Congregation which meets near El Dorado Hills, invites the community to a community Passover Seder on Friday, April 18 at 5:30 p.m.
Jewish people worldwide celebrate Passover to recall their release from slavery in ancient Egypt over 3,300 years ago.
It commemorates the story of the Exodus, led by Moses, as described in the Bible. Passover, which started on April 15 this year and lasts eight days, is one of the most widely observed Jewish holidays.
It begins with a special Passover meal called a Seder; a dinner with family and friends where the story of the Israelites’ exodus from Egypt is retold every year. Seder customs include discussing the Passover story, eating matzo (unleavened bread) plus other symbolic foods and drinking four cups of sacramental wine.
A limited number of seats are available for the Temple Kol Shalom Seder.
