PASSOVER 2024 / 5784

Passover begins Monday evening, April 22nd, with the first seder, and concludes at sundown on April 29th (for those observing seven days of the holiday) or at sundown on April 30th (for those observing eight days of the holiday.)


Passover is a wonderful time to welcome guests into our homes, especially for those who do not have a place to go for the holiday. If you have an extra seat at your seder table, please contact Sue Ellenby, so we can help connect you with someone who is looking for a seder to attend.


At NSCI we will celebrate Passover with the Passover Morning Experience and study on Tuesday, April 23rd, at 9:30 am, and a Yizkor or memorial ritual.  The administrative office will close at 1:00 pm before the first Passover Seder on April 22nd and will remain closed until 9:00 am on April 24th. Additionally, the administration office will be closed on April 29th to allow staff to observe the  final day of Passover.
