To accommodate the first night seder, our service will be held at 5:15 PM.
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 »
Please note: Services for the beginning of Passover will be held in the Fifth Avenue Sanctuary; to accommodate plans members may have for the first neight seder, our Eve of Passover service on April 10 will be held at 5:15 PM instead of 6 PM.
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 and remember those whom we have loved and lost.
