Holiday Services

All of our holiday services at The Bridge are open to everyone, regardless of your faith background.

While we would love to have you join us weekly for our Shabbat services, we know that there are those who aren’t at that place in their journey. You are welcome to attend holiday services without being a regular attender. Whether you are Jewish and looking to celebrate the holidays with community or a believer who is being drawn to beauty and depth of the biblical feasts, you are welcome here.

Our holiday services are always listed on our event calendar in the menu above, and are typically the evening beginning each holiday. Holiday services are similar in structure to our weekly Shabbat services, though shorter. When a holiday is a Shabbat, we begin the service with kiddush. 

Pesach (Passover) is a celebration of redemption and freedom. It is celebrated as a remembrance of the freedom HaShem provided for the people of Israel at the Exodus. This is usually in the form of a Passover seder - a special meal - with many elements of food and drink that symbolize different aspects of God's redemption. 

For believers in Messiah Yeshua, we also remember the redemption that He purchased for us with his blood at Passover so long ago. We celebrate the freedom we have in Him and worship Him for His goodness.

The feast of Pesach is also called the feast of Unleavened Bread, as it kicks off 7 days of eating only unleavened bread.
