Celebrate Passover 2019/5779 with Beth Am

The Season of Our Freedom Is Almost Here!

Each year, Passover calls us to remember the Exodus from Egypt as if we, personally, had journeyed from slavery to freedom. As we retell this story, we pray that one day all people who are still enslaved will be free. As the Haggadah teaches us, "In every generation, each of us must see ourselves as if we personally went out from Egypt." We celebrate Pesach not simply to repeat the tale of our enslavement and liberation, but to find new and personal meaning in that narrative each year. As Passover approaches, it’s time to think about how we’ll prepare our homes and our spirits for the arrival of the Feast of Freedom! As you cleanse your homes of chametz (products with leavening), please consider bringing unopened packages to Beth Am to donate to the hungry (see Second Harvest containers on the upper campus and in the Beit Kehillah).

While Passover is primarily a festival centered in the home, Beth Am offers several opportunities to celebrate as a community (be sure to check out Passover resources):
