JCHE Celebrates Passover 
Jewish Community Housing for the Elderly
(Brighton, MA)
At the Brighton campus and at the Coleman House, JCHE's Rabbinic intern, Moshe Givental, conducted a multicultural Seder. Reading from a newly revised edition of the Haggadah translated into English, Russian, Mandarin, and Hebrew, Moshe invited residents representing the Russian and Chinese communities to read passages from the book in their native languages.

Because JCHE is home to seniors of all backgrounds, religions, and beliefs, their multicultural Seder celebrated freedom for all people-regardless of race, ethnicity, or religion-who have fled oppression or who have been displaced from their homes.

Everyone felt included, welcome and wanted at the event.
