I spent last evening at a seder hosted by some friends. I had been to seder many years ago when I was in college and I remembered some of the traditions, but it was really nice to join a family and friends in sharing this festive occasion and learning more about the ceremony.

And the food: Wow! (Or should I say “oy” in a good way?) Brisket, kugel, peppers, gefilte fish, matzo soup, horseradish…I ate way too much – which seemed to be the idea. And we had fun singing the songs. I won’t pretend that I know any more Hebrew than “Mazel Tov,” but I remembered the tune to “Had Gadya.”

Thanks, Mel and Adele and Jonathan and Jamie. Good Pesach!
