Last Saturday we had a wonderful Seder at church – there were over 130 people in attendance. My husband took a few pictures and has shared them.
Selma at our table was lighting the candle and saying the blessing over our table
The other “mamas” lighting the candles and saying the blessings.
My friends Julie and her husband Tommy, Juma standing (He has taught a few Bible studies which you can link to) and some of Julie’s inlaws.
Rabbi Michael explaining about the Matzos,
One of my favorite parts, examining the matzos to see that it is bruised, striped, and pierced as was Jesus for us.
Please see my categories section below this post to link to seder notes for detailed explanations of the seder. One of the parts of the Seder is to hide the afikomen, a piece of matzo is wrapped in a napkin and hidden by the Papa, the children search for the afikomen during the Seder which they then redeem for a price. Just like Jesus was hidden in the tomb, and how He redeemed us with the price of His precious shed blood.
My husband hid the afikomen under my son’s plate, there were too many in the room to hide it too far. We had been teasing Alana, Juma and Maria’s daughter about where the afikomen was and she was giggling so sweetly. Maria is to Alana’s right. Here she is finding the afikomen under Edward’s plate, Kelly is to Edward’s left.
FOUND!!!! We then used that afikomen to have communion.
My oldest is still at college, but here is a picture of us. From left to right, Kelly (Edward’s) girl friend, Edward, sitting – my husband Jim, me and my daughter Katherine.
Have a blessed day,
