Box 4169, Evansville, IN 47724, Celebrating Passover Two-hundred-and-eighty stu- dents and faculty members at St. John the Baptist School, Newburgh, gathered in the school cafeteria March 24 for a Jewish Passover meal. Every student and teacher sat down to plates filled with hard- boiled eggs, lettuce, grapes, matzah, and a mixture of apples and raisins. There were also cups of grape juice on the tables. The meal began with a bless- ing and an explanation of Passover. "We have gathered to celebrate the Passover, our feast of freedom and of God's saving love for his people. When the Is- raelites were slaves in Egypt, the Lord God sent Moses to de- liver His people from the slav- ery. The Israelites never forgot the night they left Egypt. For more than 3,000 years they have celebrated the Passover, thank- ing God for listening to their prayers and freeing them from slavery." During the celebration, Kathie Kruse, St. John's music teacher, led the students and teachers in songs and dances. As part of the meal, the stu- dents heard the story of the de- liverance of the Jews from Egypt. They also heard an expla- nation of the symbolism of the foods on their plates. For exam- ple, the lettuce is placed on the table as a "sign of the meager diet our fathers had in Egypt. It is dipped in salt water to remind us of the tears our fathers shed when they were slaves." The eggs symbolize the required of- fering brought to the temple on all festival days. "It also reminds us of our sorrow over the de- struction of the temple."
