Press Release: Chabad House-Lubavitch Jewish Center

Residents and students of Tallahassee and surrounding areas are warmly invited to attend the 13th annual authentic Public Passover Seder at the Chabad House-Lubavitch Jewish Center. All Jews, regardless of affiliation or background, are encouraged to participate in a Passover Seder replete with traditional hand-made Matzah, four cups of wine, lively dialogue, and a gourmet Kosher for Passover meal. This Seder is sure to provide an inviting atmosphere of warmth and acceptance.

"The Seder has kept Jewish families and communities together for thousands of years, and is the ideal time to celebrate true freedom from limitations", says Rabbi Schneur Oirechman, executive director of Chabad Lubavitch of the Panhandle-Tallahassee.
The theme of the Seder will be 'A Taste of Freedom' -- how to overcome limitations prevalent in society today.

The concept of 'freedom' is needed and relevant in America now more than ever. The ideal of freedom influences much of our lives. This Seder will focus on how to liberate ourselves from the challenges and tribulations that bind and confine us, by encouraging personal growth and self development. What a great way to relive the Exodus - people walking away feeling freed from the limitations of "Egypt" in their lives, and even the self enslaving "Pharaoh" within.
"This is an exciting opportunity to meet new people, share and enjoy great food", says Rabbi Shalom Loeub, program director of Chabad. "The Seder meals will be interactive, warm and vibrant, interspersed with lively discussion through group participation as well as individual involvement".

The Seders will take place at the Chabad House-Lubavitch Jewish Center, 2601 N. Meridian Rd. The first Seder will be held on Monday, March 25th at 7:30pm. The second Seder will be held on Tuesday, March 26th at 8:30 pm. Suggested donations are $36 per adult, $18 for children and students - though no student will be turned away due to lack of funds thanks to help from our sponsors and Florida State University Student Government Association. Sponsored discounts are available. Please RSVP by March 22nd as space is limited.
