This event has passed

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 March 30 will be held at 5:15 PM instead of 6 PM. Cantor Mo Glazman will lead our service. The Passover morning service on March 31 will be held at 10:30 AM. Rabbi Sarah Reines will deliver our sermon and be joined by Cantorial Intern Alex Kurland.

Reading for the
First Day of Passover:

Yom Rishon shel Pesach
Exodus: 12:37-42, 13:3-10

Services for the Conclusion of Passover will be held in the Beth-El Chapel on Thursday, April 5 and Friday, April 6 at 5:30 PM and 10:30 AM, respectively. The April 6 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.
