The name “Passover” derives from Moses’ promise that God would “pass over” the homes of Israelites on the evening when firstborn Egyptians were to be slain (Exodus 12:23). Learn more »

Services for the beginning of Passover will be held in the Fifth Avenue Sanctuary; to accommodate plans members may have for the first night seder, our Eve of Passover service on April 10 will be held at 5:15 PM instead of 6 PM. Rabbi Joshua Davidson will deliver the Passover Morning sermon.

Services for the Conclusion of Passover will be held in the Beth-El Chapel. The April 17 service is a memorial service. It is one of four times during the year when we mourn together (Yizkor) and recite the memorial prayers to remember those whom we have loved and lost. Rabbi Allison Tick Brill will deliver the concluding sermon.
