• Passover {2018} Celebrations in Hoboken + Jersey City

    Spring has officially sprung, and for the Jewish residents of Hudson county, that means one thing — Passover is coming. Passover is an 8-day Jewish holiday that celebrates the escape of the Jewish people from Egypt. It is one of the most important religious holidays in Judaism, well known for the ban on all things leavened {no bread, no cake, no pasta — think of it like a more religious Whole30}. The first night of Passover is on March 30th, so we’ve rounded up a list of Passover related events going on in Hudson County:

    Arielle, a lifelong Jersey girl, has been “the crafty friend” for as long as anyone can remember. 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!
