The Holiday of Passover, which this year begins on Saturday night, March 27, and ends Sunday night, April 4, 2021, celebrates the exodus of the ancient Israelites from Egyptian slavery. Here, at the Daughters of Sarah Community for Seniors, we are busy preparing for this important Holiday. In order to get ready for this week-long observance multiple departments work together in an effort to ensure all religious and nutritional needs are met for all residents.
During this week, we celebrate this journey from slavery to freedom and spring- both a sense of birth and rebirth.
Passover History (a little bit)
According to the biblical Book of Exodus, when the slaves left, they did not have time to allow their bread to rise.
In memory of that, Jews for millennia have not eaten:
- food made out of flour and water that has been allowed to rise
- food made out of fermented grain (e.g. grain vinegar)
- leguminous vegetables, such as beans, as well as rice and corn (Eastern European custom)

Passover is also a traditional time to gather with your family to reminisce, sing, and celebrating together. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic we haven’t be able to gather for services or Seder meals. In lieu of not being able to celebrate services and meals together, Daughters of Sarah Community for Seniors, has created several YouTube videos so you feel like you’re included in our Passover holiday! Below are links to the various services led by Rabbi Beverly Magidson.
We wish you and yours a happy, healthy, and meaningful Passover. Enjoy!
