The holiday is observed with a Seder, a feast that remembers the age-old story of Moses leading thousands out of Egypt.
The meal includes cups of wine, matzo and other symbolic foods.
But as local Rabbi Chaim Kosofsky points out, it’s most important to share the tradition of the holiday.
“The Bible instructs the people to transmit the story to their children, tell the story, explain to them. And the Bible even gives the words to use. This has been transmitted for thousands of years and there are many things we observe at the Seder in order to engage the children,” says Rabbi Kosofsky who’s with Lubavitcher Yeshiva Academy in Longmeadow.
Jewish families traditionally celebrate Passover with a Seder tonight and tomorrow night.
