This year’s Sar Shalom Pesach (Passover) Seder will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn in Lewisville, Texas. This beautiful banquet facility is the largest ever for Sar Shalom, which means plenty of room for friends, family, food, fellowship – and finally dancing! Included in the evening is a wonderful time of teaching, a delicious chef-cooked Kosher meal, and of course the Seder ceremony itself.

If you’ve never been to a Passover Seder, we cordially invite you to experience the blessing and fullness that comes from honoring G-d’s commandment to remember the Hebrew’s miraculous deliverance from Egypt, and our deliverance from sin by Messiah Yeshua! We absolutely guarantee this will be one of the most memorable and meaningful evenings you ever experience with your family. (And if you’ve joined us before, we look forward to seeing you again!)

“This is a day you are to commemorate; for the generations to come you shall celebrate it as a festival to the Lord—a lasting ordinance.” Exodus 12:14

“Celebrate the Festival of Unleavened Bread, because it was on this very day that I brought your divisions out of Egypt. Celebrate this day as a lasting ordinance for the generations to come.” Exodus 12:17

“Then came the day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed. Yeshua sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover.” Luke 22:7

“When the hour came, Yeshua and his apostles reclined at the table. And he said to them, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of God.” Luke 22:14-16

While they were eating, Yeshua took some bread, and after a blessing, He broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.” And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you; for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins. “But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.” Matthew 26:26-28


Wine & Juice Availability

All wines and grape juices served during passover must be certified kosher for Passover. To ensure your preferences are honored, we’ve made every effort to provide options that are convenient and affordable – and of course passover kosher!

Sar Shalom will provide passover certified kosher grape juice in the registration price for those who prefer this option. When registering for the event, please indicate how many guests at your table prefer grape juice.

For those who would prefer wine, the option to purchase passover certified kosher wine by the bottle is available is also available on the registration form. You have several purchase options for wine ranging from a premium Israeli Merlot to a basic sweet wine.

Please note: State law prohibits guests from bringing wine into the hosting facility, and wine will not be available for purchase on site. So please consider the available options when completing your registration.

How many bottles of wine should you order?

We partake in four glasses of wine (or juice) during the Passover Seder. A typical (750ml) bottle of wine serves 4-5 “standard” glasses of wine. By simply reducing the amount of wine poured in each glass (i.e. “two fingers”) a single bottle of can provide eight servings, which is enough for two adults during the Seder.

If you prefer larger servings of wine, or simply wish to ensure plenty of wine is available for your family and guests, please order additional bottles when making your reservation. If in doubt, it’s better to have a little wine left over than not enough to complete the Seder. Once your registration and checkout is complete, additional wine cannot be ordered and wine will not be available for purchase at the facility.

Dancing and The Violin Guy!

What is a Passover Seder?

A Passover Seder is a very special service held as part of the Passover celebration. It is always observed on the first night of Passover, and in some cases on the second night as well. On both nights, the Seder concludes with a dinner. Participants use a book called the Haggadah to lead the service. “Hagaddah” means “the telling,” in Hebrew, and it contains instructions for the seder, blessings and the Passover story.

The word “seder” literally means “order” in Hebrew. The name comes from the fact that there are 15 elements of the service, all revolving around the upcoming Passover dinner. Food is an important symbolic element of Passover.
