Grand Passover Seders Planned In Litchfield & Southbury

This year celebrate Passover with family and friends at the eighth annual community Seder Series, this year at two convenient locations from which to choose: Dolce Heritage Inn in Southbury on Wednesday, April 12, or The Litchfield County Jewish Community Center in Litchfield on Thursday, April 13. The events are being offered by Chabad Lubavitch of The Northwest Corner.

Passover is the festival that commemorates the liberation of the Jews from Egypt. Every year, on the first two nights of the Passover holiday (which lasts for eight days), it is customary to conduct a Seder, which is meant to be a festive event.

Rabbi Joseph Eisenbach will conduct the Seder in Southbury, and two Rabbinical students will conduct in Litchfield. Reading will come from and expound upon the Haggadah, the book that tells the tale of the exodus of the Jews from Egypt. Everyone present will be encouraged to read different verses.

There will be spirited singing and a five-course holiday meal will be served. Matzah is the traditional wafer eaten by Jews during Passover, symbolic of the bread that had no time to rise as the Jews hurried to leave Egypt 2,000 years ago. Handmade matzahs will be enjoyed during the Seders.

The Seder will begin each night at 7:30. Cost per night is $36 for adults, $25 for seniors, $18 for children ages 4–12, and free for ages 3 and under. Reservations must be made by April 9.

For reservations or more information send email to chabadNW@aol.com or call 800-297-6864.

Dolce Heritage is at 522 Heritage Road in Southbury. The Litchfield County Jewish Community Center is at 770 Village Green Drive.
