The Los Alamos Jewish Center will have its annual community Passover Seder at 5:30 p.m. April 19 at the Betty Ehart Senior Center. The event is open to anyone interested in attending.
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 delivery of the Jews from years of slavery, ultimately culminating in the birth of the Torah, the Five Books of Moses, at Mount Sinai.
This year Rabbi Jack Shlachter of the Los Alamos Jewish Center and Cindy Freedman, Cantor at Hamakom in Santa Fe, will lead the Community Seder as an evening of ritual dedicated to the memory of the Exodus from Mitzrayim, or Egypt and the importance of freedom and respect for everyone.
Saffron of Santa Fe will cater the event. Seating is limited so make reservations by April 4. Admission includes a full dinner and is $25 per adult LAJC member; $35 per adult non-member; $5 for member children ages 5-12; $15 for non-member children ages 5-12; and free for children younger than four.
The dinner will be kosher, including meat and chicken; however, vegetarian plates can be requested at the time of registration.
