At Passover (Pesach), Jew tells the story of the Exodus from Egypt of the Israel slaves from the Pharaoh. God instructs Moses to go to Pharaoh and tell him “Let my people go.” When the Pharaoh refuses, 10 plagues are brought upon the Egyptians. During the last plaque, the Slaying of the Firstborn, the Israelite children were “passed over.” After these plagues, Pharaoh agreed and the Israelites were set free.

NTHC’s Seder includes the reading of the Haggadah including the Four Questions, searching for the Afikoman, and all the typical Passover foods including Matzah (unleavened bread), Charoset (symbolizing mortar used by the Jew in building during their slavery) and Maror (horseradish).

All are welcome to this family friendly event!

North Tahoe Hebrew Congregation is located at 7000 Latone Ave. in Tahoe Vista, with Shabbat Services weekly each Friday at 7 p.m., often with a potluck before services or dairy Oneg following. Check the calendar at
