On 14 Nisan (April 3), 300 members of the Ulyanovsk Jewish community celebrated Passover. The event took place at the restaurant “Ruslan and Ludmila”, in two banquet halls, at the same time. One seder was a family seder and the other was a VIP seder.
 
In the VIP room, the atmosphere was more traditional; it was quiet, all the prayers and rituals took place following the Pesach routine, keeping all the traditions and commandments. In this hall, there were about 100 people. Among them were several guests of honor. One of them, Olga Zheltov, Head of Family Policy of the Government of the Ulyanovsk region, gave a congratulatory speech and handed Rabbi Yosef Marozov a letter of thanks and a gift on the occasion of the birth of his fifth child.
 
The family Seder was attended by about 200 people. Half of them were children. The Seder lasted nearly three hours, during which each participant had to drink 4 glasses of wine or grape juice, eat matzah, and bitter greens. All participants were extremely glad to celebrate Pesach with the community.

Many people, who were not able to attend, received clear instructions on how to celebrate the Pesach Seder at home as well as the basic necessities like matzah and grape juice
