Happy Passover

Mosaic would like to wish you a very happy Passover. 

The first night of Passover begins at sunset on Friday, April 3, and the holiday continue  s until sunset on Saturday, April 11. 

The name "Passover" is derived from the Hebrew word Pesach which is based on the root "pass over" and refers to the fact that G-d "passed over" the houses of the Jews when he was slaying the firstborn of Egypt during the last of the ten plagues.

In a Nutshell...

Here's an easy event to organize that people love!

"Havdallah, Bonfire, & Stargazing" 

On a beautiful Saturday evening in March, over 35 young professionals from Mosaic Outdoor Club of S. Florida gathered for an evening under the stars.  The weather was perfect; just right for sitting around a bonfire, singing, roasting hot dogs and s'mores, and topped off with a moving Havdallah service.  Unfortunately, the sky was overcast, so the stargazing will have to wait till next time.  People hung out until midnight, when it was time to go home.
