Planning Passover Classes 2009

After Purim, many Jewish families begin to get ready for Passover. Our program providers don’t want you to go it alone and are putting together excellent pre-Passover classes. We have everything to wine tasting to toddler events to Interfaith seders. They look like a lot of fun, plus they’re educational so we hope you enjoy!

These events are from some of the organizations in our online directory . If you are a Jewish professional or lay leader and would like to list your events (especially your upcoming sedarim) with, please contact Robin Schwartz, Network Director at

The spring holiday commemorating the Exodus of the Jews from slavery in Egypt. The Hebrew name is "Pesach." Hebrew for "lots," referring to the lots cast by Haman, the story's antagonist, to determine the date on which to kill the Jewish people. It's a spring holiday commemorating the Jewish people's triumph. The story is told through the biblical Book of Esther; the namesake heroine, a Jewish woman, marries the Persian king. Their interfaith relationship is central to the story.
