Perfect Pairings ~ A Seder Meal

Last Monday night we had the awesome honor to attend a Jewish Seder Meal at our home church. Greg and I have a special place in our hearts for this Biblical tradition.  


–noun, plural Se·ders, Hebrew Se·da·rim 
[Seph. se-dah-reem; Ashk. suh-dah-rim, sey-dah-rim] 

a ceremonial dinner that commemorates the Exodus from Egypt and includes the reading of the Haggadah and the eating ofsymbolic foods, generally held on the first night of Passover byReform Jews and Jews in Israel and on both the first and secondnights by Orthodox and conservative Jews outside of Israel.
To read more about Passover, go here:

9 Then the LORD said to Moses, 10 “Tell the Israelites: ‘When any of you or your descendants are unclean because of a dead body or are away on a journey, they are still to celebrate the LORD’s Passover, 11 but they are to do it on the fourteenth day of the second month at twilight. They are to eat the lamb, together with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. 12 They must not leave any of it till morning or break any of its bones. When they celebrate the Passover, they must follow all the regulations. 

 24 “Obey these instructions as a lasting ordinance for you and your descendants. 25 When you enter the land that the LORD will give you as he promised, observe this ceremony. 26 And when your children ask you, ‘What does this ceremony mean to you?’ 27 then tell them, ‘It is the Passover sacrifice to the LORD, who passed over the houses of the Israelites in Egypt and spared our homes when he struck down the Egyptians.’” Then the people bowed down and worshiped. 28 The Israelites did just what the LORD commanded Moses and Aaron
Exodus 12:24
