Jewish Passover celebration in Westlake

Rabbi Mendel Jacobs and the Chabad Jewish Center in Westlake will distribute matzahs and host two Passover Seders for local Jewish families.

The Chabad Jewish Center in Westlake is all ready for this spring’s Passover celebration. The center will be hosting two community Passover Seders, the traditional meal that marks the holiday since the Exodus of the Israelites from ancient Egypt some 3,328 years ago.

Passover is not only about celebrating the freedom of our ancestors. The holiday reminds us that we too can break free of our own self-imposed struggles and grow to be better human beings.

To mark the holiday, Jews eat special unleavened cakes called “matzahs.” Chabad will distribute hand-made matzahs to Jewish families all across the Westside suburbs.

Passover begins on Friday night, April 22. The Seder dinners will be held on April 22 and 23 at 7:45 p.m. in Westlake. The gourmet full-course dinner will include shmurah matzah, wine and a complete Seder plate. A donation of $18 per person is suggested.

Reservations are required. If you would like to attend the Seder, or know of someone who would appreciate the Passover matzahs, please call us at 216-973-1148, or email

Rabbi Mendel Jacobs

Director of the local Chabad Jewish Center
