The congregation of Har Shalom Synagogue in Missoula will welcome Passover celebrants from all over the state.

Har Shalom is busy getting tables ready for Saturday's seder.

The Passover dinner will attract Jewish faithful from as far as Butte and Kalispell.

Many Jewish families are celebrating family seders Friday evening. The Passover celebrates the exodus of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. Passover will begin at sunset Friday and run for seven days.

Har Shalom board president Bert Chessin said, "we will probably have between 90 and 95 people joining us."
