Going to my first Seder!

I  was going for an afternoon run here in beautiful Palm Springs when I ran past the Palm Springs Art Museum, up the road past the Catholic Church, turned at the Jewish Temple, around the cemetery and then as I was looping back through the road I came across a whole mob of people near the Catholic Church. It was there that I saw Jesus on his cross getting ready to be crucified.  It was interesting watching the crowds reaction as some of those gathering were visibly shaken by the dramatic scene that was being played out before them. 

It reminded me of the importance of this weekend to many people of different faiths.  To the Christians and Catholics this weekend marks the time Jesus was crucified and the Jewish faith celebrates Passover. 

Whatever you celebrate: Easter or Passover or just the chocolate bunny rabbit it is an interesting thing to write about.  What did you celebrate as a child and what do you celebrate today? 

Shabbat Shalom!
