Passover practice

Orange school treats pupils to matzah and more
Pupils at Southern Connecticut Hebrew Academy recently held a model seder in preparation for the 8-day Passover Holiday that begins with the first seder on Saturday evening. The model event prepared pupils for the “real thing” school officials said. Pupils had a palatable preview of the matzah, the unleavened bread that the Jews baked in haste as they left Egypt, and maror, the bitter herbs, symbolizing the harsh enslavement. Passover celebrates the Exodus of the Jews from Egyptian bondage over 3,300 years ago.
