“Why is tonight different from all other nights?” That question begins the Seder meal that is shared in Jewish homes each year during Passover. The Seder meal is a celebration of the time when God freed the people of Israel from their life of slavery in Egypt. The angel of death passed over the Jewish homes and the following day, Pharaoh let them go. It was during the Passover meal with his disciples that Jesus took the bread and broke it and said, “This is my body, which is broken for you; and he took a cup of wine and blessed it and said, this is my blood, which is shed for you.” Our Seder meal, which will be held in the fellowship hall, will include the various elements of the traditional dinner, which help to tell the Passover story.

While child-care will be provided for infants and toddlers, we encourage older children to come and enjoy the meal. At the end of the meal, a piece of the matzo bread (the afikoman) is hidden for each child to find (and win a prize when they do).

The Maundy Thursday Seder meal will be an experience to remember. Since there is much food preparation to be done, we must have reservations no later than Friday, March 27. Please e-mail or call the Church office to give your reservation, including the number of people in your party. Plan now to attend on April 2 at 6:00pm and find out, indeed, why this night is different from all other nights.
