Every year The Passover Seder is celebrated at The Family Foundation School and is hosted by Rabbi Michelle. The dinner lasts a couple hours because of the traditional blessings that were said before the meal started. In between the blessings songs of praise were sung, as well as played by the Jewish band that was hired for the event. Each family in the school was given two tables and they were all set up in the gym. Also, in respect for the Jewish religion all males that attended this event all wore Yamakas.
Once the blessings were said, Rabbi announced the food to be served. Head chef Bill Cortz and his kitchen staff whipped up some special food for the celebration. We were served a small chicken with potatoes and vegetables by the catering crew. In the middle of the food being served, students joined Rabbi in a festive dance around the gymnasium. I danced as much as I could, but after I had consumed the delicious food and a large amount of it, moving around was the last thing I wanted to do. The celebration allowed family’s to reunite and savor the celebration to love one another.
