Chompie’s celebrates the Jewish holiday of Passover with its 25th Annual Passover dinner

Celebrate Passover Dinner with Family at one of Chompie’s Restaurants, or at Home

Passover is one of the Jewish religion’s most sacred and widely observed holidays. Passover commemorates the story of the Israelites’ departure from ancient Egypt to escape persecution and the angels of death passing over Israelite’s homes.

As the story goes, Moses approaches the reigning pharaoh several times, explaining that the Hebrew God has requested a three-day leave for his people so that they may celebrate a feast in the wilderness. When the pharaoh refuses, God unleashes 10 devastating plagues on the Egyptians, culminating in the slaying of every firstborn son by an avenging angel. The Israelites mark the door frames of their homes with lamb’s blood so that the angel will recognize and “pass over” each Jewish household.

Jews observe the week-long festival with a number of important rituals, including traditional Passover meals known as Seder, the removal of leavened products from their home, the substitution of matzo for bread and the retelling of the exodus tale.

The Borensteins, owners of Chompie’s and being of Jewish descent have celebrated the tradition of Passover in their families for generations and continue the tradition in their restaurants today.
