Wednesday, March 22
It is no coincidence that Passover and Holy Week overlap each year. Historically, the Last Supper, as we know it, took place at a Passover Seder dinner, and is the basis of the Communion that we celebrate today. Understanding the underpinnings of the Jewish Seder ritual reveals just how revolutionary the transformation of this tradition was.
Rabbi Evan Moffic will explore with us the Jewish Seder tradition on Wednesday, March 22, at 7:00 PM after Wednesday Night Supper.
