Jewish Holidays

matzo passover

If you are living life according to the Jewish calendar, there's always another holiday around the corner. Sometimes somber, usually festive, Jewish holidays are a wonderful way to mark the seasons and the passage of time. And here at the PJCC we do it in style. Here you can read about why we celebrate different holidays, find holiday activities or maybe get related recipes.

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
• Cereals
• Pasta

Thank you for your cooperation.
