Staff report

YOUNGSTOWN

Stambaugh Auditorium and Kravitz Delicatessen will host a traditional Pre-Passover Seder Dinner at 6:30 p.m. April 2 at Stambaugh, 1000 Fifth Ave. Rabbi Joseph P. Schonberger and the Rev. George Balasko will conduct the meal and ceremony.

The event is aimed at the non-Jewish community and offers insights into the Jewish celebration of Passover.

Reservations are required. Tickets are on sale at $30 per person, or a $240 for a table of eight. Make reservations at stambaughauditorium.com or call the box office at 330-259-0555.

During the service, the dinner will incorporate the use of a traditional Haggadah, or Seder book. Dinner will include traditional Passover foods such as unleavened bread, boiled eggs and horseradish. Also served will be matzoh ball soup, apricot glazed chicken, matzoh casserole, roasted potatoes, steamed broccoli and unleavened desserts. Grape juice also will be provided, and bottles of wine are available for advance purchase.

A Seder is the traditional meal served on the first two nights of Passover. During the meal, there is a service that retells the story of Exodus. In Exodus, the Jews were slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt, but through divine efforts, they were freed from slavery and taken to the Promised Land.

Hurrying to flee Egypt, the people were forced to carried off their dough, which was still unleavened. For that reason, no leavening is used during Passover, and all Passover baking is made from unleavened bread, called matzoh.

In Christianity the meal is important because it celebrates not only the Christian tradition of the Last Supper, but also Christians’ own Jewish heritage, which provided the context for the Last Supper. This event is intended to demonstrate the common roots of Judaism and Christianity and to promote a better understanding between the faiths.

The event is sponsored in part by TR Party Center, City Printing, D&D Linens and WFMJ-TV and is endorsed by the Mahoning Valley Association of Churches and the Youngstown Area Jewish Federation.
