CHABAD JEWISH CENTER ANNOUNCES COMMUNITY PASSOVER SEDER
“Relive the Passover Exodus” with Rabbi Zalman & Nechami Charytan
Few Jewish holidays evoke the same warm sentiments as Passover. Memories of family and friends gathered as the four cups of wine are poured, the four questions asked and the Matzah served, all contribute to Passover’s popularity in the Jewish community. Bringing the warmth and tradition of this festival to the Cobb, KSU & Cherokee Communities, the Chabad Jewish Center is inviting residents to participate in a Community Seder to be held on Monday night, April 14, 2014.
The Seders take participants through the wondrous liberation of our ancestors from Egyptian bondage, while sharing the relevance and beauty of the age old festival in our modern lives. Included in the Seder will be a four course catered dinner paired with a variety of fine imported wines and handmade round 'Shmurah' Matzah from Israel.
“Passover is not simply a celebration of the historic liberation of an ancient people,” said Rabbi Zalman Charytan, director of the Chabad Jewish Center. “Passover is about our own personal liberation – physically, emotionally and spiritually. Passover inspires us to break free from the shackles restraining us from reaching new heights - in our lives, relationships and connection with G-d.”
All are welcome to join the Community Seder, regardless of Jewish affiliation or background. Reservations can be made by calling 678.460.7702.
What: Community Seder by advance reservation only
Where: Chabad Jewish Center
When: April 14th at 7:45pm
What is the holiday of Passover?

Passover commemorates the exodus of the Jews from Egypt and will be celebrated with festive “Seder” dinners on April 14 and 15 (2014).
