Seder – A Ceremonial Meal at Passover

While Christians are getting ready to celebrate Easter, the Jewish people are preparing for Passover.

Passover commemorates the formative experience of the Jewish people, and their transformation from scattered tribes indentured in Egypt, to a nation on the road of redemption.

Paska – Ukrainian Traditional Easter Bread

It seems like Easter is still several weeks away, hence lots of time for Paska baking, but not according to my “social” calendar.
