Passover is all about spending time with family and friends, sharing a meal and retelling a story of freedom.

Rabbi Gideon Estes wanted to carry that spirit further by uniting worshippers of three branches of Judaism on Houston’s west side for a Yom B’Yachad, day of togetherness.

The Conservative synagogue he leads, Congregation Or Ami, joined with Reform Temple Sinai and Orthodox Chabad West Houston for the event on April 7 at the West Houston Jewish Community Center.
