The Seder is the traditional Passover meal that includes reading, drinking 4 cups of wine, telling stories, eating special foods, singing, and other Passover traditions.

As per Biblical command, for our Jewish brothers and sisters, it is held after nightfall on the first night of Passover (and the second night if you live outside of Israel), the anniversary of our nation’s miraculous exodus from Egyptian slavery more than 3,000 years ago.

For us as Christians, it’s a sacred night when Jesus, celebrating the Jewish festival of Passover with a Seder meal, changed a few things, and instituted communion and showed us what it means to serve one another.
