Collected Resources


On Pesach (or Passover), Jews recount and relive the Exodus—the “going out from Egypt” of the ancient Israelites as they were liberated from Egyptian servitude. Pesach is the most observed of all Jewish holidays in North America, primarily through the ritual meal of the Seder. The power of the Seder has multiple sources. It is at once a family event at home, an opportunity to absorb a central Jewish narrative, a link across generations, and a celebration of Jewish life and commitment.1
