    As the temperatures start to warm up and the days grow longer, so comes spring and with it, the Jewish holiday of Passover. Passover, the eight-day holiday which marks the Jews exodus from Egypt.

For our Jewish Hudson County residents, we have rounded up a list of all the events going on for Passover this year {the first seder falls on Friday, April 19th}. Read on to find out where to celebrate Passover in Hoboken + Jersey City this year.

She is always working on something, whether it be a knitting project, a homemade card, or a delicious dinner - because why buy when you can DIY? When she’s not creating something new, Arielle can be found down the shore with her husband, laughing way too hard at her own jokes, reading whatever historical books she can get her hands on, or enjoying a beer or a bourbon with friends!
