Passover, 2018

Among the ceremonies that sustain the Jewish heritage, especially beloved is the Seder, celebrated on Passover Eve, which is also called Pesach. The name Seder means “order,” as in the order of the service. By reading the words of this Haggadah and by eating symbolic foods, we obey the mitzvah written in the Torah: “You shall tell the Pesach story to your children in the days to come.” The story we tell is how the Jewish people were freed from being slaves in Egypt. We call this the Exodus.

Looking for a new way to celebrate Passover and hear the Passover story?  Here is a list of a few Passover Seders happening around LA this Friday night.

Spago, Beverly Hills: 

The 34th Annual Passover Seder Dinner will be held Saturday, March 31st at 5:30 p.m. The event benefits MAZON, The Jewish Response to Hunger, a national nonprofit, working to end hunger among all faiths in the United States and Israel. The funds raised from this dinner will help families in Los Angeles.  Tickets are $195 per person, and $80 per child (12 and under).  Each guest also receives Spago’s oven-baked matzah and macaroons packaged to-go.

Akasha, Culver City:

The Sedar starts at 6:00pm led by Rabbi Mark Borovitz and a dinner including choice of fish balls, gluten-free Matzoh, and Braised short ribs.  Adults are $110 per person including wine.  Also good to note is that all the Passover food rules are strictly followed.
