Sundown on Friday marked the beginning of Passover for the Jewish community around the world. “Passover is a spring festival that represents the Israelites’ exodus from Egypt,” said Rabbi Mitch Cohen of the Shalom b’Harim synagogue in Dahlonega. The eight-day observance began Friday, April 3, and will continue until Saturday, April 11.
