Since 1996, Nativity Catholic School provides a Christ-centered learning environment from preschool through 8th grade that fosters strong Christian virtues focused on cultivating the full potential of each child.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Hosting the Seder is one of our Middle Schoolers’ favorite events of the school year. An annual tradition, each middle school student plays a part in its presentation: 8th grade provides and prepares the food; 7th grade sets the table, and 6th grade leads us in prayer, presents the readings, and directs the drama of the Coming of Elijah. Our 5th grade gets involved, too, by washing each guest’s fingertips, serving as Seder choir, and cleaning up.
We are commemorating a Jewish ritual service and ceremonial meal held the first night or first two nights of Passover.
And we just LOVE it!
The History, Music, Symbolism, The Story, the Horseradish and Applesauce Sandwich (Maror, Charoset, & Matzah).
At the end of this two-hour event -- as is tradition -- each of us turns to the other and says, "L'shanah haba'ah b'Yerushalayim! -- Next year in Jerusalem!"
