Taganga is a small fishing town surrounded by stunning mountains on the Colombian coast. There are many Israeli backpackers touring the area, as well as other Jewish tourists.

As we strolled through the city spreading the word about our upcoming seder, which will be held in the magnificent Hotel Benjamin, overlooking the ocean, we have been met with a tremendous response.

People are thrilled with the opportunity to celebrate Passover, and many are volunteering to help advertise and prepare the seder. Dor the curator at a popular Israeli hostel “Casa Bait” has made it his mission to help us reach as many Jews as possible.

We have put on Tefillin and held long meaningful discussions with many tourists. The enthusiasm and excitement is palpable, as people anticipate the festivities.
