CLINTON TWP., NJ - Chabad of Hunterdon will be hosting its Sixteenth Annual Community Passover Seder, which will be held on Friday, April 19, at 7:30 p.m. at Beaver Brook Country Club. The Seder is open to all, regardless of affiliation, synagogue membership, or financial means.
For more than 3,300 years, Jewish families near and far have gathered around the festive table on the eve of Passover, to commemorate the Exodus from Egypt and celebrate the “Seder” feast.
This is no ordinary meal. The Passover Seder incorporates 15 multi-sensory steps which reach deep into the human psyche in every way possible and all at once: Rich melodies, dynamic visuals, prayers, stories, and even the senses of taste, smell, and touch are part of the tradition.
Each year on Passover, as nature experiences its own season of springtime renewal, the Jewish people participate in the Seder tradition and experience their own renewal and rebirth. Commemorated at the Seder table are the Exodus from Egypt and the birth of the Jewish nation over three millennia ago – and at the same time participants embark on a modern-day journey to spiritual freedom.
This unique Seder experience will be led by Rabbi Eli Kornfeld and will feature explanations and commentary based on mystical and traditional insights, humor, and song. A four-course holiday dinner will be served with hand-baked Matzah and choice of fine wines or grape juice.
Reservations are required for the Seder and the cost is $54 for adults, $36 for children. No one will be turned away for a lack of funds.
