On March 14, seniors were given the opportunity to experience the Lenten customs of Judaism. Congregation Beth-El Zedeck hosted an inter-faith Seder supper, open to persons of all religions, and more than 20 students were able to attend.

Each table at the supper had a Jewish host to walk them through the 15 steps to the meal, and to explain their background and the customs. From horseradish to fish, seniors experienced all the traditional foods associated with the Jewish history and Passover. Beyond the meal, students also were able to hear, read and sing Hebrew. “I enjoyed the Seder supper because it was such a different atmosphere than any other (church service) you could experience, and I learned so much about Judaism,” said Louis Soria, senior.
