Pesach (Passover) at CABI

Pesach (Passover) begins on Friday night, March 30, 2018 and ends on Saturday night, April 7. The first Pesach seder is Friday night, March 30, 2018. On that night, CABI will not hold a Shabbat evening service, since we hope that everyone in our CABI community will either be hosting or attending Pesach seders in homes. The second seder is Saturday evening, March 31, preceded in the morning by our regular Shabbat morning service at 10:00 am.

How will you celebrate Passover this year? 

CLOSED: Host or Attend a Seder

The Passover seder, meaning order, might be the most beloved of Jewish home rituals. It’s believed that the obligation to retell the story of the Exodus—the flight from slavery to freedom—was observed by our ancestors ever since the actual Exodus itself.

Thanks to the open-hearted welcome at 8 different seders, we have been able to place over 40 guests--people who are new to Boise or to CABI, and old friends who for whatever reason found themselves "seder-less." As of Tuesday, March 27, our seats are filled, and we wish everyone chag Pesach sameach - a happy Passover!

CLOSED: Pesach in the Desert

Experience Passover the way our ancestors did—in the wilderness! On the second night of Pesach, Saturday, March 31, Rabbi Dan will lead a creative overnight seder experience at Succor Creek Natural Area campsite in Malheur County, Oregon. Sorry, we reached our maximum number of campers.

"Last Chance Seder" for The Table

The Table, a group focused on creating Jewish community for those in the “Odyssey years” of their lives—people in their 20s and 30s—will host a Pesach seder on Friday, April 6, which is the very last night of Passover. Go to The Table to request more information!

CLASS IS OVER: Running a Seder 101

During this 90-minute class on Tuesday, February 27 at 7:00 pm, we will go through a haggadah (Seder prayer book) and note the parts that are required in any Seder, as well as touch on ALL of the extra pieces that can make it a more wholesome experience.
