This year, Passover begins at sundown on Friday, April 3 and ends the evening of Saturday, April 11. Bear in mind that first two days of Passover (from sundown of April 3 until nightfall two days later) are full-fledged, no-work-allowed holidays. The subsequent four days are Chol Hamoed, when work is allowed, albeit with restrictions. Chol Hamoed is followed by another two full no-work-allowed days. Expect many Jewish businesses to be closed for most of Pesach 5775.

Chabad Piazza Bologna will be hosting Seder dinners the first and second nights of Pesach, April 3 and 4. Space is limited, booking is essential, and reservations and payment can be done on the Chabad Piazza Bologna website. Call +393338130919 for additional info.
