Wednesday, 17 April, 2024 9 Nisan 5784

12:00 PM - 1:00 PMZoom

Passover is one of the most widely celebrated holidays in the Jewish tradition. Jews may spend countless hours preparing their kitchens for the holidays, cooking recipes passed down for generations and enjoying the Seder with those closest to us. This year, Melton is proud to welcome award-winning journalist Rahel Musleah to   teach us about global Passover traditions. Through music, food, and celebration, we will learn how different Jewish communities across the planet personalize and re-enact the experience of leaving Egypt, explore the classic dish of haroset as it is interpreted globally, celebrate contemporary ideas for children and families, and more. This program is sure to inspire you to bring new ideas to your own seder table. Join us for a vibrant exploration of Passover around the world!
