Temple Beth El hosts Seder at Country Meadows

Wednesday, June 19, 2019 by ANITA HIRSCH Special to The Press in Local News

As a preview to Passover, a Seder was held the evening of April 15 at Country Meadows, Upper Macungie.

The Seder led by Rabbi Re’em and a teen group from Temple Beth El. All residents were invited to attend.

After an introduction to Passover by Rabbi Re’em, Diane McCready, the chaplain at Country Meadows read a prayer.

The rabbi described the food items on the Passover plate and sang while playing his guitar.

The teens read several prayers and sang with the Rabb Re’em.

A piece of matzah was hidden, as is traditional, and the teens during part of the service looked for the hidden matzah.
