Thu, April 20, 2017, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM PDT
Join us for an afternoon filled with music and sweets!
Mimouna is a Moroccan-Jewish post-Passover festival that takes place immediately after the close of the Passover holiday at sundown. Mimouna is a celebration of community, friendship, and hospitality and also commemorates the miracle that G-d granted the Jews at the "Red Sea" ("Yam Suf" in Hebrew) when they were fleeing the Egyptian army. Moroccan-Jewish families invite relatives and friends and other guests over to each other's houses and there is a sweet table covered in a white tablecloth that is set up in each house that serves as the centerpiece for the Mimouna festival.
