Center for the Study of Jewish-Christian-Muslim Relations

17th Annual Merrimack College Model Passover Seder

2:00pm - 3:30pm EDT April 8

Cascia Hall

Rabbi Robert Goldstein presiding

At this festive Passover ritual called the Seder, we will tell the story of the Exodus of Moses and the Israelites as they escaped from Pharaoh in ancient Egypt.  RSVP to jcm@merrimack.edu by April 1st.

The holiday of Passover, which begins at sundown on Monday, April 14, 2014, is a holiday of freedom as well as a holiday of springtime.

According to the Pew Research Center’s October 1, 2013 report, “A Portrait of Jewish Americans: Findings from a Pew Research Center Survey of U.S. Jews,” Passover is overwhelmingly the most celebrated Jewish holiday in this country, with 70% of American Jews participating in a Seder in the past year.  

The highlight of Passover observance is the Seder, with its many symbolic foods and its elaborate liturgy, the Haggadah. We hope to share with you the richness of our history as children of Abraham and invite you to participate in this festive event. RSVP to jcm@merrimack.edu by April 1st.
