On the morning of April 14, in preparation for the Passover holiday, Jews across the globe will gather to burn their chametz, leavened foods like bread that are forbidden on Passover. Instead of chametz Jews eat matzah, a hard, cracker-like food made from a dough of only flour and water which has not been allowed to rise.
The holiday of Passover, which begins Monday evening celebrates the miraculous exodus of the Jewish people from slavery in Ancient Egypt some 3,300 years ago.
In recent years, Chabad-Lubavitch, the world's largest Jewish organization, has initiated a Passover campaign to reinvigorate the observance of the holiday by organizing thousands of communal seders. This year, Chabad organized seders will be attended by hundreds of thousands in more than 80 countries, including the world's largest seders in Katmandu, Nepal and Cusco, Peru.
The nearest Jewish seder offerings will be held at the Chabad House-Lubavitch of Greater Toledo, 4020 Nantuckett Drive, on both Monday and Tuesday at 7:15 p.m.
On Monday holiday candles will be lit at 7:55 p.m.; while on Tuesday the candles will be lit after 8:58 p.m.
Both services will provide the Seder table, complete with handmade Shmurah Matzah, wine and grape juice, a homemade dinner and a Seder experience called easy-to-follow by organizers.
