Passover Program at the W. T. Bland Library

If you have ever wondered what goes on at the Seder dinner and why it is important to the Jewish faith than plan to come to our library’s Passover Program on Thursday, March 25 at 4:00pm. Rabbi Geoffrey Solomon of the Traditional Congregation of Mount Dora will be conducting as he calls it “Seder as dinner theatre”. You will get to taste some of the traditional Passover foods and find out why and how the tradition started.

Passover, the Jewish festival in celebration of the Jews’ freedom from slavery and flight from Egypt, begins this year on March 29 at sundown. Although traditions vary throughout the world, the basics are as follows. The holiday lasts a total of seven or eight days (depending on where it’s being celebrated) and the first night of Passover begins with a ceremonial dinner, called a Seder, where the story of the exodus is told. The food and wine customs of a given Seder are elaborate, and differ between regions and families. Fundamental to the Seder table is the Seder plate. To find out what is on a Seder plate, show up at the W. T. Bland Public Library in Mount Dora on Thursday, March 25 at 4:00pm.

The Passover Program will be held at the W. T. Bland Public Library located at 1995 N. Donnelly Street in Mount Dora. All Library programs are free and open to the public. For additional information, call (352) 735-7180 option 5.
