"When does the world decide that enough is enough, that the human cost has been way too high in Syria, too many people have suffered and died in this brutal war run by the Syrians and the Russians".

Besides, the practice post-dates the time of Christ - negating the idea Jesus was participating in a Seder during the Last Supper, rabbis Yehiel Poupko and David Sandmel recently wrote for Christianity Today.

Passover is a springtime holiday observation that aims to retell the story of the Jewish exodus from Egypt.

In other words, a cruel and unimaginative God kills all the first born children in Egypt, except the Jewish ones. These horrific plagues included rivers of blood, swarms of flies, locusts and frogs, the death of livestock and finally an oppressive darkness lasting three days. It would pass over that house and not kill the first-born child. "Especially this one. Maybe he will do so next year...in Jerusalem!"

"[The Chabad House is] a revolving door of people coming in and out", Gurary said. He summoned Moses and told him to take the Israelites out of Egypt immediately.

Passover is a beloved holiday in the Jewish tradition, but those not raised in the Jewish faith may have questions about what the celebration is all about.

But they had a blast doing it, and that's the point both for the singers and their audiences, which all the groups see as including Jews of every sect as well as non-Jewish viewers of all backgrounds who come to learn about a major holiday in another religion or just to appreciate the music. Technically, there shouldn't be any leavened grain in the house at all! This cleansing can also illustrate a spiritual purging from the impurity of sin.

The Trump White House was still figuring out its Seder plans on Monday morning, but said that the Seder would take place that night, when the holiday begins.

"There's a lot of symbolism as far as the bitterness of slavery", Margulis said.

Two Seder meals are being offered this week at B'Nai Israel. "Why is it that on all other nights we eat all kinds of vegetables, but on this night we eat bitter herbs?".

Ohev Tzedek will have service days at the first and last days of Passover. It always begins on the 15 day of the month of Nisan in the Hebrew Calendar.

Some Jews and Christians say the ritual meal commemorating the Israelites' liberation from slavery in ancient Egypt is so uniquely Jewish that it doesn't belong in churches or Christian homes.

The symbol of the unleavened bread is central to Passover observance, Mandel said.

During the Seder, people drink four cups of wine or grape juice, symbolizing the promises that God made to the Israelites, including deliverance from bondage.

U.S. President Donald Trump, who has a Jewish daughter and grandchildren, could continue this tradition - but as of Monday morning, it was still unclear whether he will.
