Pesach Seder at Touro



The Jewish observance of Passover began at sunset on Monday, April 14, and Touro Synagogue celebrated with a community Seder on Tuesday at the Levi Gale House. The Passover Seder is a 15-step ritual-laden feast that commemorates the Pharaoh’s release of the Jews over 3,000 years ago. During this family-oriented meal, the story of the Exodus from Egypt is retold, with special practices designed to spark interest and questions from the children. Pictured singing the Four Questions part of the ritual are 5-year-old Ofek Barak, son of Lt. Cdr. Guy Barak of the Israeli Navy, and 14-year-old Carmi Mandel, son of Touro Rabbi Marc Mandel. See the Faith section on page 21 for a listing of worship services.
