Preparing for Passover

"(At the event) we will be handing out recipes for creative things to cook during the Passover Seders," Adler said. "We will also have songs and games for children. Volunteers from both synagogues and the Jewish community will be helping others by giving advice on certain foods that are only eaten this time of year."

Also at the event, Wegmans will be providing free Passover food samples and recipe booklets. The volunteers will also be giving out Haggadahs, which tell the basic Passover story.

Even though Passover begins in two weeks, Ain said it is important to have the event now due to the amount of time it takes to get ready for Passover.

"The event will be (roughly) two weeks before the first Seder, so this gives the community time to prepare their houses and use that Sunday to go shopping."

Ain also said that it is important to have "Passover in the Aisles" because Passover is an important holiday and by having this event, it shows visibility within the community.

"But the most important thing is that (anyone who comes) doesn't need to be a member of a synagogue," Ain said. "We're reaching out to all Jewish people (regardless) their affiliation."
