Celebrating A "Shared History"

Antioch Christian Church celebrates Passover with 15th annual seder dinner

For 15 years, in Vienna has been celebrating Passover with the Jewish community.

Passover Seder, ("order, arrangement"), is a Jewish ritual feast that marks the beginning of the Jewish holiday of Passover.  

While the church is Christian, it says it has welcoming members with diverse backgrounds -- like Karen Holley, a church member who was raised Jewish and first brought the seder dinner tradition to Antioch. She acted as chef for the annual service  Thursday night, which also marked Christianity's Maundy or Holy Thursday, the commemoration of  Jesus' Last Supper.

"Even though we're not Jewish, we're Christian,  understanding the components of [Passover] is very important because ... it's like knowing your grandparents, and what they had gone through," said the church's Rev. Randy Beeman, who led prayer at the seder.
