Come and learn about Passover, the eight-day Jewish celebration of the Exodus from Egypt. How do Jews celebrate this holiday of liberation?

Why is this night different from all other nights? Find out at this Historical Society of Cheshire County program with special guest Rabbi Amy Loewenthal of Congregation Ahavas Achim of Keene.
