This week is full of educational, community-building and fun events. Here are a few to check out:

Model Matzoh Bakery
Tuesday, April 16th
5:00-5:45 PM
Chabad NW Seattle, 8420 Dayton Ave N
RSVP: Chabadofballard@gmail.com

The Model Matzah Bakery is the ultimate hands-on, Passover educational experience!
The exhibit recreates a functional model of the hand-made Matzah factories used by Jews for thousands of years. The participants “relive” the exodus from Egypt as they pound out their very own Matzah. Beginning with a sheave of wheat, they experience the hustle and bustle as they hurry to beat the timer to ensure that crunchy finished product is completed within 18 minutes! The delightful presentation creates an exciting interactive environment where the everyone has a great time learning about their heritage and the tradition of Matzah.

“Relive the Passover Exodus”

Few Jewish holidays evoke the same warm sentiments as Passover. Memories of family and friends gathered as the four cups of wine are poured, the four questions asked and the Matzah served, all contribute to Passover’s popularity in the Jewish community. Bringing the warmth and tradition of this festival to the Community, Chabad is inviting all residents to participate in community Seders to be held on Friday night, April 19,

The Seder take participants through the wondrous liberation of our ancestors from Egyptian bondage, while sharing the relevance and beauty of the age old festival in our modern lives. Included in the Seder will be a delicious catered dinner

“Passover is not simply a celebration of the historic liberation of an ancient people,” said Rabbi Yoni Levitin “Passover is about our own personal liberation – physically, emotionally and spiritually. Passover inspires us to break free from the shackles restraining us from reaching new heights – in our lives, relationships and connection with G-d.”

All are welcome to join the community seder, regardless of Jewish affiliation or background.
