Pesach begins Friday, April 19 at sundown. Let us help make your observance special and meaningful. Read on to find out what will be happening in and around Or Shalom leading up to and during the holiday.
Passover for Kids and Youth!
You and your family are invited to attend an afternoon of festive and educational Passover activities for children and youth at Or Shalom. Geared for ages 3 to 13, many festive and educational activities await. At this free event, you’ll learn the Passover story and bring home items that you can use at your own Seder. The afternoon will be led by Harriet Frost, leader of our B’nei/Simchat Mitzvah program (B’yachad), and Cantor Shira Stanford-Asiyo, leader of our monthly children’s program (Shabbat Sheli).
Help build a Red Sea mural, hear an interactive retelling of the Passover story, learn the parts of the Seder, make afikomen bags, and dance and sing!
Sunday, April 14 at 3 p.m.
Make sure you RSVP if you plan to attend.
