“Passover is not simply a celebration of the historic liberation of an ancient people. Passover is about our own personal liberation — physically, emotionally and spiritually. Passover inspires us to break free from the shackles restraining us from reaching new heights."
Rabbi Pesach Burston


Chester and Goshen. Few Jewish holidays evoke the same warm sentiments as Passover. Memories of family and friends gathered as the four cups of wine are poured, the four questions asked and the Matzah served, all contribute to Passover’s popularity in the Jewish community.

Two local Chabad organizations are offering the warmth and tradition of this festival.

Goshen

The Chabad Center of Orange County, led by Rabbi Meir Borenstein and Rivkie Borenstein, is offering an elegant catered Passover dinner at 12 North Church St. in Goshen.

Relive the exodus, discover the eternal meaning of the Haggadah, and enjoy a community Seder complete with hand-baked Shmurah Matzah, wine, and dinner spiced with customs. Share songs, stories, and traditions.

First Seder: Friday, April 19, at 7 p.m.

Second Seder: Saturday, April 20, at 7:45 p.m.

The cost is $36 for adults, $10 for children, or $100 for a family. No one will be turned away for lack of financial means.
