Cantor/Activities Assistant Mel Novick conducted a Model Seder on April 15th. The Seder included a historical discussion of rituals and traditions, followed by the actual telling of the story of the Exodus out of Egypt which was read by several residents. The Activities department helped to prepare the needed materials for the seder plates, and made their own charoset. (Its color and texture are meant to recall mortar (or mud used to make adobe bricks) which the Israelites used when they were enslaved in Ancient Egypt). We would also like to thank the Housekeeping department for setting the room up, and the Dietary department for preparing a special meal for Passover – Matzo ball soup, brisket and gefilte fish.
