PASSOVER SERVICES AND SEDERS

The holiday of Passover is one of the most important on the Jewish calendar. The period marks the Exodus of the Jews from Egypt, on their way to receiving the Torah and then settling in the land of Israel. It is incumbent on every Jew–an obligation–to attend at least one seder on Passover. At the Seder, we read the Haggadah, the story of the Exodus, drink four cups of wine (or grape juice), ask the Four questions, hide the Afikoman (matzoh) and, of course, eat a festive meal. Cruger Avenue Synagogue is pleased to be the only synagogue in the Pelham Parkway area–perhaps even the entire Bronx–to offer two Community Seders, on the first two nights of Passover. As always, these seders are FREE OF CHARGE (donations gladly accepted)! Please join us for services and seders.

  1. Good afternoon, i was told that the Bronx Jewish Center and Young Israel of Pelham Parkway as well as the Riverdale synagogues are offering two community seders as well.

    1. To answer your question, Young Israel of Pelham Parkway is only having a Community Seder the first night. To the best of our knowledge, and according to their website, the Bronx Jewish Center is also only offering a Community Seder on the first night. As for Riverdale, as we’re not sure of the status of every synagogue there, if you re-read the copy, you’ll see it states “perhaps” the only synagogue. Hope this clears up any confusion on your part. Thanks for your interest in our shul.
