The Los Alamos Jewish Center will have its community Passover Seder that open to anyone interested in attending. The event will be 5:30 p.m. April 15 at the Betty Ehart Senior Center.
The Seder is a ceremonial dinner filled with rituals designed to celebrate the Jewish people’s exodus from Egypt. The Seder, which is Hebrew for “order,” ushers in the week of Pesach in which Jews refrain from eating Chametz.
The celebration of Passover commemorates the miraculous delivery of the Jews from years of slavery, ultimately culminating in the birth of the Torah, the Five Books of Moses, at Mount Sinai.
Thus, for Jews all over the world, this annual time of renewal is a time to look at themselves and society through the lens of the slave once again. It is a time to let go of all prejudice, intolerance, closed mindedness and limited thinking. It is a time for renewed inspiration to help create a world that is free for all peoples and all religions.
This year Rabbi Stephen Landau will lead the Community Seder as a fun evening of ritual dedicated to the memory of the Exodus from Mitzrayim, or Egypt and the importance of freedom and respect for everyone.
Seating is limited so make reservations by April 8. Admission includes a full dinner and is $30 per adult LAJC member, $40 per adult non-member. For children age 5-12, admission is $10 for member, $20 for non-member and free for children 4 and under.
The event will be catered by Walter Burke Catering of Santa Fe. The dinner will be Kosher and will include Gefilte fish, Matzo Ball soup, salad, chicken or salmon, or butternut squash with curried vegetables, and macaroons, chocolate dipped apricots and flourless chocolate squares for dessert.
