GRANDVIEW A Passover Seder meal will be celebrated at 5 p.m. Sunday in the Church of the Nazarene gym, 500 N. Elm St.
There is no charge for the Jewish dinner, which traditionally celebrating the Hebrews escape from Egyptian slavery. The symbolic Seder elements will be explained as part of the dinner.
The Passover meal is held in memory of the days of Egyptian slavery and Red Sea deliverance by the Lord. Sunday’s dinner will also explain how the Jewish Messiah is exemplified through the symbolism of the Seder Table.
The Jewish Passover will be celebrated April 23, although most years it falls closer to Easter.
