The Centrality of Passover in Jewish Tradition

March 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The Centrality of Passover in Jewish Tradition
Tuesday, March 16
6 p.m. Central Time

Many would argue that Passover is the most important holiday on the Jewish calendar. But, what is Passover and why is it so important to Judaism? Join Rabbi Shoshana Dworsky as she teaches us about the history and significance of Passover, and it’s impact on us today.

 

Passover narrates the transition of what was a family – Jacob and his descendants – to a people, a nation. The celebration is designed to instill in every Jew a sense of gratitude for their liberation from slavery, by the God who responds to the cry of the oppressed.

Rabbi Shoshana Dworsky is a new member of the St. Olaf College ministry team, and loves it! She was ordained at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in New York, and served congregations in NYC and Portland OR, before returning to her native St. Paul. Along with her work at St. Olaf, Rabbi Shosh also serves as Associate Chaplain at Carleton College. For the past 10 years she has served a congregation in Eau Claire WI, a position which informally confers on her the title, “Chief Rabbi of the Chippewa Valley.”
