Special to the Review

The community is welcome to join local members of the Beit Torah Jewish Congregation for its annual Kosher Community Seders and to hear the Exodus story during Passover at 6 p.m. April 14, and at 6:30 p.m. April 15.

Both Seders will be at the community meeting hall of the Chino Valley Methodist Church, 735 E. Road 1 South, between the church building and the food bank, in Chino Valley. 

Sign up for one or both Seders; to register, call 928-237-0390 or 928-227-0582 or email ansheitorah@cableone.net. Volunteers to help with preparations, set-up and clean up are always welcome.  

According to Beit Torah Rabbi Adele Plotkin, one month before Pesach (Passover), Jews celebrate being saved from genocide in ancient Persia.  For Purim there are three required observances:  Hearing the Book of Esther; sharing a festive community meal; and providing for the needy so that all in the community will be able to observe Pesach completely if they want to and so that the community institutions involved with providing for the needy are maintained.

Providing for Pesach includes all basic needs, such as clothing and Passover food, as well as access to the Seders.  These Seders contain at least a festive meal after the telling of the Exodus story, when the Jews and a mixed multitude were saved from the oppressive tyranny of Egyptian Pharaohs.

The festive meal is made up of foods special to Pesach and without leavened foods and other prohibited for Pesach foods, such as corn, beans and peas among others.

Even so, delicious food is a hallmark of Seders.  

People can bring their questions and their appetites, Rabbi Plotkin says, and join in the local celebration.
