Celebrating the Jewish holiday of Passover

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Of all the Jewish holidays, Passover, which was Monday, is the one most commonly observed.

According to a study published in the 90's, more than 80% of Jews have attended a Passover Seder.

Every year, Rabbi Arnold Mark Belzer hosts a passover seder.

The primary observance of Passover relates to the exodus from Egypt, after generations of Jewish slavery, as documented in the bible.

But it means a lot more than that.

"It's a time for families to gather, to welcome the spring season, a time to eat some wonderful food and remember our ancestors, and the drama of that time when they found freedom after suffering enslavement at the hands of the pharoahs," said Rabbi Arnold Mark Belzer. 

A few year's ago, Rabbi Belzer's Passover Seder even made it into Southern Living magazine.
