Thanks, Henry. I have very good memories of Pesach's past. Elijah's cup, opening the front door, the hidden (by me!) Afikomen! The questions, which I asked until I was VERY old :-D:-D!

One time we went to my parent's best friend's Seder. Their grandchildren were scared of the grandfather (he was very British, loud and opinionated!). When he went to look for the Afikomen it was right where he left it!! The youngest granddaughter was afraid "grandpa" would be mad and had put it back where it belonged !

She's now in her 70's and this story is told every year!


Have a wonderful Pesach,

We have been using the same Haggadahs for many years. The Haggadahs have food stains, taped, pages copied and starting to get very delicate. They were written by Rabbi Martin Berkowitz, Temple Adath, Merion, Pa and published by H. Levitt Publishing Co in 1958. It takes about 1/2 hour to go through the whole service and about 10 min. to finish after the meal. Long enough for the traditional portions and short enough to keep the kids (w/their participation) interested. Probably will have to pickup free copies at some of the supermarkets one of these years, but they look like the service will be longer. Will be doing the 2nd night this year with 22 people, about 1/2 dozen will be celebrating Easter the following day.

A Happy Pesach & Easter to All.

I have my Dear Father's and Mother's (MTRIP) haggadah's. They were issued to the Army men for Passover. There's matzoh crumbs and wine stains all over them, making them even more loveable to me :-D, IMO!

Henry, I know that we look at things differently ! I think the stain's are a sign of the past, you'd rather have new... .

At my seder tomorrow there will be 6 people under age 28 and one non jew .They would not understand that the stains have been there for generations .They would think we are using dirty hagadas .
The one I myself am using is stained ,I've been using it 60+ years.

Default Oranges and olives seder

Our Unitarian Universalist congregation is VERY Liberal. We have members from all walks of life, all shades of lifestyle and opinion, and all backgrounds.

Last year, one of our members of Jewish heritage introduced us to the oranges and olives seder.

The seder plate typically includes an apple mixture representing the bricks and mortar of the captivity (I disremember its name but I am sure somebody can fill it in), a bitter herb (lettuce), a boiled egg, and a lamb bone. They all have symbolic meaning in the service. We have had the pleasure of being invited to participate with the local Jewish community in several traditional seders, some of them conducted by a wonderful woman rabbi.

The story told is that during the debate over women rabbis, an old line conservative Jew said, "a woman belongs in the rabinnate as much as an orange belongs on the seder plate!"

The Oranges and Olives seder is born from that statement. It is a very modern, liberal, multi cultural and multi religion version but based on the ancient Passover story. Of course some Jews consider it close to blasphemous but others among the widespread liberal Jewish community consider it appropriate, especially when presided over by a woman rabbi. I certainly do not intend to start a controversy here. We found it very interesting, in any case.

I join in wishing a wonderful evening to all who celebrate Passover.

Hope that all of my fellow cruisemates had a happy and healthy Pesach. Rob and I were up in Maryland for both seders. The first night we were at the Suburban Country Club in Baltimore with Rob's cousins, our children, and our grandchildren. The second night, our older daughter, and son-in-law, hosted the seder; attending were all the in-laws, children and grandchildren. I am stuffed with food!!!

Thumbs up Attending a seder

We have found our local Jewish community to be very open and all we have to do is ask one of our Jewish friends to be welcomed with open arms. They even let my wife hide the matzoh one time!

It is a moving and beautiful ceremony, of great interest to those of any religion but particularly to Christians since we share the same Holy Book. Jewish family values are well known and the great involvement of the children in the ceremony is impressive.

At the end, of course, we all say "next year in Jerusalem." I would add, "Next year in Jerusalem in peace."

Of course another moving and beautiful service is the Easter Sunrise Service in most Christian churches. I hope Henry and others get an opportunity to attend one of those someday.
