Passover Comes To Rockaway
To celebrate the first day of Passover, Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder led the mock Passover dinner at the Rockaway Park Senior Center for all residents of every faith to celebrate and enjoy the holiday season.
Passover began this year at sundown on Monday, April 13. On the Jewish calendar this is the 15th day of the month of Nissan.
The holiday marks the Exodus of the Jews from Egypt after 400 years of slavery, as noted in the Old Testament
The Seder is a special family meal marked with rituals to remind all of the significance of the holiday.
