Yom Sheini, 24 Shevat 5777

PassoverPassover (Pesach) is the most celebrated Jewish holiday. Its home rituals, family gatherings, and universally recognizable symbols have meaning for everyone who participates at the seder table. Families and individuals join together at Temple Israel for Yizkor services, a communal lunch, and worship in the sanctuary on the first and last day of the holiday. 

Three different seders are offered at the Temple throughout the week. Our community seder, led by our clergy and open to all, draws hundreds of people for the full traditional seder filled with song, laughter, food and wine. Temple Israel’s clergy help to lead the Inter-Religious Council’s annual interfaith seder. Each year the elderly of New Rochelle are transported here from local senior residences to enjoy our Friendship Club seder. Passover provides everyone in the extended community with an opportunity to celebrate together.
