Passover Seder

On Friday, March 30th at 7 pm, USBC will be hosting a Passover Seder. Below is a traditional explanation of the Passover Seder celebrated by the Jewish faith from Wikipedia.
The Passover Seder is a Jewish ritual feast that marks the beginning of the Jewish holiday of Passover. … The Seder is a ritual performed by a community or by multiple generations of a family, involving a retelling of the story of the liberation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt. This story is in the Book of Exodus (Shemot) in The Hebrew Bible. The Seder itself is based on the Biblical verse commanding Jews to retell the story of the Exodus from Egypt: “You shall tell your child on that day, saying, ‘It is because of what the LORD did for me when I came out of Egypt.’” (Exodus 13:8) Traditionally, families and friends gather in the evening to read the text of the Haggadah, an ancient work derived from the Mishnah (Pesahim 10). The Haggadah contains the narrative of the Israelite exodus from Egypt, special blessings and rituals, commentaries from the Talmud, and special Passover songs.
Seder customs include telling the story, discussing the story, drinking four cups of wine, eating matza, partaking of symbolic foods placed on the Passover Seder Plate, and reclining in celebration of freedom. The Seder is performed in much the same way by Jews all over the world. The Seder is the most commonly celebrated of Jewish rituals.

The Passover holds special prominence in the Christian faith. For one, on the night Jesus was betrayed, He was observing the Passover meal with His disciples. Second, the Bible tells us that Jesus was the ultimate Passover Lamb that was sacrificed for the atoning of our sins (1 Corinthians 5:7Get rid of the old yeast, so that you may be a new unleavened batch—as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.).
To keep in step with Jewish traditional and to combine the Christian faith of Jesus as being the perfect Passover Lamb, our church invites you to attend this special observance of the Passover Seder. Our very own Brian Altman will be leading our Passover Seder and will be combining his Jewish tradition with His Christian faith. During the Seder presentation, we will learn about the importance of the Seder, partake in the Seder, and understand the importance of the Passover Lamb.

On this memorable night, we will have several tables set up with their own Seder plates, we will eat of the Seder meal, we will participate in the Seder rituals, and we will learn about the Seder with hands-on involvement.
Since the Seder is a family observance, we invite all, young and old, to be in attendance.
If you are planning on attending, please signup in our foyer so that we can make room for everyone. Also, if you would like to help setup or read a prayer during the Seder, please indicate on the signup sheet.
