WEST HARTFORD —Bringing the warmth and tradition of Passover to the Greater Hartford Community, Chabad will be holding at least 7 Public Passover Seders in Greater Hartford area.
West Hartford’s Chabad House kitchen will completely transformed into a fully Kosher for Passover cooking facility, where meals for over 1000 people will be cooked and prepared for all local Chabad Seders. All food is prepared with strict adherence to the numerous Passover laws and traditions, keeping all Chametz or leavened bread locked up, ensuring that not a single crumb finds itself anywhere near the Passover preparations.
A special Seder will be held for the Russian speaking community, many who could not celebrate their Jewish heritage openly while living in the Soviet Union, at the Alfred Plant Senior Building on Farmington Ave.
Seders will be held in Glastonbury, Simsbury, Wesleyan University, Litchfield, U-Conn, University of Hartford and of course, in the Chabad House itself located at 2352 Albany Ave. on March 30 at 7:30 p.m. and again on March 31 at 7:45 p.m.
The March 3o event will include a special children’s program. The Haggadah will come to life with games and fun activities. Older children will have leadership roles in running the Seder.
“Passover is not simply a celebration of the historic liberation of an ancient people,” said *Rabbi Joseph Gopin*, Director of Chabad in the Greater Hartford. “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 – in our lives, relationships and connection with God.”
Chabad’s Seders cater to diverse groups of people from all walks of life.
To join the Community Seder, regardless of Jewish affiliation or background. Reservations can be made online at www.ChabadHartford.com/Seder
