Here you can read about why we celebrate different holidays, find holiday activities or maybe get related recipes.
Passover Hours & Restrictions
April 14 - 22, 2014
Early Center closure April 14 - 5:00 am - 5:00 pm
During the Passover holiday period, it is customary to abstain from eating products that contain any leaven. This is food containing grain products that have come into contact with water and have been allowed to ferment. We recreate the story of Passover by eating unleavened products as did the ancient Hebrews who had no time to let their bread rise as they fled from slavery in Egypt.
We ask that you please do not bring the following foods into the Center during this period:
• Bread and bread products
• Cookies, cakes and other pastries
• Crackers and other similar snacks
Thank you for your cooperation.
