Highland Park Nursing and Rehab Center to Host Passover Seder
Tickets for the Highland Park Nursing and Rehab Center's Passover seder on March 21 are available at the Highland Park Senior Center.
The Highland Park Nursing and Rehab Center (HPNRC) is proud to be hosting a traditional pre-Passover model seder in collaboration with the Highland Park Senior Center.
The seder, led by Rabbi Nosson Factor, will take place on Thursday, March 21, at 11:30 a.m. at Highland Park Nursing & Rehab Center, at 50 Pleasant Ave. in Highwood.
Admission will be $5 for Highland Park Senior Center members, and $8 for non-members. Tickets can be purchased by stopping by the Highland Park Senior Center, or calling (847) 432.4110. All registration fees will be generously donated to the Highland Park Senior Center. Admission will include a complementary Haggadah.
A delicious gourmet Passover meal will follow the Seder from noon to 1 p.m., where guests of all religions will feel at home as they enjoy classic Jewish dishes and learn about this ancient Jewish custom with family and friends.
The seder customarily marks the beginning of the Jewish Passover holiday, which begins this year Monday evening, March 25 and ends Tuesday evening, April 2. It consists of a ritual feast with four cups of wine, Matzo (unleavened bread crackers), symbolic foods, relaxation and celebration.
It is customary to invite guests that may otherwise not partake in such a tradition, and is often used as transmission from one generation to the next. The table is set with a seder plate full of items symbolic of the Passover story, as guests of the seder follow along in a book called the Haggadah.
