Description Passover, the spring holiday that marks a time of rebirth, also, according to tradition, commemorates the Jewish people's escape from slavery in Egypt in ancient days. But modern scholarship has called into question practically all aspects of the legend we have so loyally commemorated each year. If we can no longer accept the Exodus narrative as historical, how and why do we still tell the story? Passover remains compelling because it links us to our families and connects us to the generations that have preceded us. It recalls for us the history and journey of our people--not just from long ago, but continuing to our own day. It renews our Jewish identity. And it recommits us to a belief that, with our help, enslaved and oppressed peoples everywhere can aspire to and achieve freedom. One of the highlights of our year is our Congregational Seder. We have generally held this celebration at a restaurant or hotel in the city on the Saturday during the Passover week. Depending on the calendar, we may also gather for a Pre-Passover Seder. We use The Liberated Haggadah: A Passover Celebration for Cultural, Secular and Humanistic Jews, written by Rabbi Schweitzer, and everybody participates, with much singing throughout the service, led by our wonderful member/song leader, Anne Shonbrun. All the kids get a reward for searching for the afikomen, the hidden piece of matzah.
