WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — While Christians finished their prayers for Good Friday, the Jewish community prepares for the night of Passover, a sacred occasion for remembrance.
Many Jews took part in a Passover Seder. It looks back at the history of the Jewish faith, as the Jews left Egypt and later received the 10 commandments at Mount Sinai. For many, this is considered the birth of the Jewish people. It is also a time for self observance.
“Of course we remember the past and all that it means and the significance of that, but it also has some significance in our present life because the message that it conveys is one of getting out of boundaries, leaving your personal limitations. So it’s also a very personal holiday for everybody involved,” Rabbi Moshe Lieblich said.
The traditional Passover meal consists of Matzah and wine. Rabbi Lieblich says non-Jews can take part in this night as well.
