The Los Alamos Jewish Center will hold its annual community Passover Seder at 5:30 p.m. March 26 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.
Thus, for Jews all over the world, the annual time of renewal is an opportunity 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 Jack Shlachter of the Los Alamos Jewish Center, will lead the Community Seder as an evening of ritual, dedicated to the memory of the Exodus from Mitzrayim, or Egypt, and the freedom and respect for everyone.
Walter Burke Catering of Santa Fe will cater the event. Seating is limited, so make reservations by March 18.
Admission includes a full dinner and is $30 per adult LAJC member; $40 per adult non-member.
Admission is $10 for member children ages 5-12; $20 for non-member children 5-12 and free for children four and younger.
The dinner will be kosher and will include gefilte fish, matzo ball soup, salad, beef brisket or salmon or portobello Napoleon and macaroons, chocolate-dipped apricots and flourless chocolate squares for dessert.
