CBI’s Passover Seder well attended

Congregation B’Nai Israel hosted more than 100 members and guests  on Tuesday night, April 11 at its Passover Seder Dinner. Passover is the oldest Jewish holiday, celebrated with an ordered dinner. “Seder” means “order,” and includes the telling of the passover story of God’s miracles to help the Jews move from slavery to freedom, songs, merriment, and the eating of specific foods that symbolize the passover story. Most attendees were members of CBI or their guests but many were Christians who wanted to have a Passover experience and learn. The seder began with a whimsical skit and was followed by a takeoff of the song, “There’s  No Business Like Show Business” replaced with the song, “There’s no Seder Like Our Seder,” sung by CBI’s Cantor Susan Burden. Various symbols were  placed together on a passover plate and participants read from the Haggadah, a book  used to ensure proper order and telling of the story. Photo/Special.
