"In the 11 rut month, on the fourteenth day of the month, nt even, Is the Lord's Passover ( I'os ai'h)." "Seven days ahalt ye eat un leavened brend, liml no letiven Mmll lie found In your house during those days." The llrst and seventh days, uro holidays fiet iipurt for religious ser vices. On thetn no work mny he done other tlinn the necessary preparation of food. Orthodox Jews observe im additional day, which ma ken the Pass over an eight day festival. The tlr.n two and the ln.t two, days nre ob served ns holidays. To-day Is th" fourteenth of Nlsnn only i n 1 1 1 sunset, nnd n.i Jewish days bcKln nt that time Ihe rnfisnver Is, properly speakliiR, the festival of tho fifteenth of Nlsan. The orthodox Jewish families nre busy several days before Pussover In cleanlnir. the cooking: utensils and tableware used nt thrf feast. On Tuesday night the head of each household made a formal search for traces of leaven. At the seder (sup per) or rassover. service to-night the various details of the ancient usage Is observed, except tho eating of the lamh. This 1s. howner, symbolized by a bone of roasted lamb, which appears on one, of the dishes. The breaking and eating of the mntaoth. or cakes of unleavened bread takes Its place. The synngoflio services to-night will be short, as Always -on this night, because the subsequent family meal and home service are the essential features of the rassover. The home service, the seder service, where th head of the family Is the priest, is ex ceedingly beautiful. The unique sup per Is Interwoven with prayers nnd benedictions made nt every stage. Seder night Is perhaps the most hallowed of Jewish observances, and the nn9 that Is ever recalled with the greatest delight. Father, mother and children are participants In the ser vice. Although a meal. It Is also a religious rite. 'The family table Is ns nacred as was the nltnr la. the temple," iays a rabbinic teaching. There Is the unusual meal and tho hRggadah, or tory of the wondrous deliverance from Egypt, together with tho hymns, thanksgivings, ascriptions of praise and 'benedictions from beginning to end of the repast. The first born (ton has already fast d throughout the day, This Is known as the fast of the first born. And now the feast comes. The. mother of the household kindles all the lights, for the seder feast calls for a rich Illum ination to mark Its Joyous character. The word seder means "order" or . "arrangement," and refers to the or der or arrangement of the meal. On the table are the three cakes of un leavened bread, covered with a nap kin; the roasted bone of a lamb, bit ter herbs, and a cup of wine placed at each plate, and other dishes. When all are seated the master lifts up the wine-cup and says: 'Tralsed art thou, O Lord our Ood, ruler of the universe, who hast created the must of the wine to gladden the hearts of men." This is the klddush. or the benediction. Thanksgiving for the festival nnd ether blessings follow, nnd each one present drinks the first cup of wine. A hymn Is sometimes sung. Parsley, lettuce or watercress Is distributed, each person on eating it saying a thanksgiving for the fruits of the earth. The middle one of the three unleavened cakes Is broken. The dish containing It Is raised and anoth er prayer offered over the bread of uffllctlon, the prayer concluding with a petition for the speedy freeing nnd restoration of the whole house of Israel. The wine tups are filled a second time nnd the youngest, person usual ly a made child asks: "Why Is this night distinguished from nil other nights, and what Is the meaning of this service?" The head of the house hold answers with the story nf op pression In Egypt, the deliverance and the exodus. The leader and the fam ily Join In repeating the "liayenu." "What Is the meaning of Pesach?" Is next asked. It is answered and fol lowed by a further question respect lng mntzoth (unleavened bread), and by another concerning marar (the bit ter herbs) to ear'h of which an answer ia given. Then conies tho responsive reading of some of the Hullol psalms (psalms 113 nnd 1 1 R ). A piece of the broken matzoth is eaten by each after an appropriate benediction. Rltter herbs are partaken of, with another benediction. Then each drinks his ot her second cup of wine, after a simi lar benediction to that over the tlrst cup. There Is more eating of niHtzoh and .bitter herbs with further prayers and then the main meal is served. Grace Is said after the meal, and It Is followed by prayer for the house hold and Its members. The wine cups are filled a third time. (f?eder service thus falls Into two parts, that which, prpepdes and that which follows the principal menl. The meal on every Pabbath evening and on every festival Is preceded nnd followed by the cup of wine accompanied by the benedic tion or klddush. To mark the more Joyful character of this greatest, of Jewish festlvnls two other cups of wine are added, nnd thus a happy evening is spent. Passover falls at full moon, which this year comes on Thursdny, the New Ihighiml Chapters Held Largely Attended Session III Meililcn.
