PESACH IS FAST APPROACHING....WHEN IT COMES....
WE HOPE YOU WILL BE AT CAS!!!
Pesach is a very special family holiday, and on Seder night Jewish People all over the world observe a unique command of communication, of education, and transmission to our children. In Shemot 13:8, we find, "And you shall tell your child on that day as follows: 'Because of this, HaShem did for me, when he took me out of Egypt.'"
At CAS we understand that we are partners with your families in helping to create meaningful Torah opportunities for our children and helping to foster a sense of excitement and love for Jewish ritual and tradition. So once again the CAS Youth Team has put together an awesome lineup of Pesach programming.Children of all ages are invited to join us as we celebrate our Journey from Slavery to Freedom, the spring, and the opportunity to join together once again.
