St. Luke’s Honors Biblical Roots with 11th Annual Seder Meal
St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Chester celebrated their annual Seder Meal on Wednesday April 12. They began holding Seders in 2006 to acknowledge their common Jewish biblical roots. The Seder is a ritual meal that celebrates the Jewish festival of Passover (when the Israelites were “passed over” by the angel of death when the tenth and final plague (the death of all the firstborn) was visited upon Egypt.)
The Seder is a family-centered affair and rich in tradition and a time for joy, good eating, singing and celebrating God’s redemption of us all. Donations went to “Kids for Peace” which promotes interfaith dialogue between Muslims, Christians and Jews.
