Welcome to the Pesach 2021 mini-site, where you will find all Pesach related info.

The eight-day festival of Pesach is celebrated in the early spring, Pesach (Passover) 2021 is from March 27 through April 4.


Pesach is divided into two parts:

The first two days and last two days are full-fledged holidays. Holiday candles are lit at night, and Kiddush and sumptuous holiday meals are enjoyed on both nights and days. 

The middle four days are called Chol Hamoed, semi-festive “intermediate days,” when most forms of work are permitted.


At the International Center, we welcome you to join us for both Seders and holiday dinners.

Are you looking for a meaningful Seder where you're a participant, not a spectator?


We offer a warm, interactive Passover Seder. Our Seder is English friendly and not prayer intensive, with discussion and spirituality. Enjoy fine wines, full dinner, liberating insights, rousing songs and crispy hand-made Matzot. Celebrate the holiday of liberation at a Seder experience you will remember for a lifetime! 


Haggadot will be available in: Hebrew/English/Spanish/French/Portuguese


Seders will be held at IJSCB 8 Museum Way.
