Happy Passover!

Happy Passover to all my Jewish readers. Yesterday the kids and I went to a Passover Seder at church held by a Jewish couple that has hosted it there 4 years in a row. It was very interesting to learn about the rituals and traditions of Passover. My kids were the only children there, so they got to ask the four questions. Everyone got to read from some material that they printed out for us. I want my children to learn about other religious and cultural traditions. They know about the Muslim ones.

One interesting fairly recent tradition was the orange on the Seder Plate. What we were told was that a Jewish Rabbi said that the woman belongs as a rabbi as much as an orange belongs on the Seder plate. However, This site and This site have a different version of events. It seems that story may be an urban legend.
