This course is a stand-alone continuation of the course with the same name that was offered in the spring on 2019. We welcome both new and returning participants.
Pesach, or Passover, is probably the most celebrated holiday in Jewish tradition – even more so than Yom Kippur – and it’s also one of the oldest Jewish family holidays and dates back more than 2000 years. The course will focus on the practical customs and how the tradition has changed from 2000 years ago until today.
