“Let all who are hungry come and eat.” These words are read at the Passover seder, which commemorates and teaches the history of the Hebrews’ liberation from slavery in Egypt. The word seder means “order,” and the Haggadah, read at the Pesach seder, structures the Passover meal, telling in song and story the order in which certain foods are eaten and their meaning, the prayers that are read, the order in which the questions and responses are read and the detailed discussion that is meant to teach and educate each succeeding generation about the events that occurred thousands of years ago—and which teach us that each person is to regard themselves as if they personally had been slaves in Egypt.
The Lincoln Park Jewish Center at 311 Central Park Avenue, Yonkers, offers a meaningful, interesting and delicious seder on the first night of Passover, Friday, April 22, starting with the mincha/ erev Yom Tov service at 7:15 p.m., followed by Kabalat Shabbat/Maariv at 7:25 p.m. The meaningful, tasty and delicious seder, with food and food for thought, will follow evening service. Our baal Koreh, Leibl Agar, will lead the seder.
The menu for the seder meal will be:
Chicken soup with kneidlach (matzoh balls)
Chicken or beef
Fruit and of course the traditional four cups of wine (or grape juice)
