MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The Jewish holiday of Passover begins at sundown Friday. Observers have been making preparations for the first of two Seder's.
At Temple Beth Shalom in Marquette temple goers were busy making traditional dishes including unleavened bread, or matzah, horseradish and haroset for the Seder Plate. For those of the Jewish faith, Passover is a very meaningful holiday.
"This is a time of year where we focus on slavery, people that are enslaved all around the world because if it had not been for Moses and the actions of the All Mighty to lead the children of Israel out we would still be there as slaves," said Organizer, Ann Arnold.
The Sedar is Saturday night at 6 p.m. For more on future events at the temple, you can check here on our website or the TV6 and FOX UP Mobile App.
