Passover eatures six symbolic foods, including matzo, a cracker-like unleavened bread symbolizing the Exodus from ancient Egypt when there was not enough time to let the bread to rise. Patch file photo.

"A number of contemporary scholars believe the story of the Exodus is apocryphal and that theRead More Israelites were never among the peoples subjugated by the ancient Egyptians. Regardless of any historical debate, most rabbis believe...." So even if it is pretty much agreed all or most of these events are myths, followers are encouraged to perpetuate superstitious practices - just like Catholics not eating meat on lent Fridays.

Correction: You state: "Unlike most Jewish holy days, there is no synagogue service forRead More Passover, although some congregations and other organizations conduct Seders." In fact, there is a holiday service for the first two days and the last two days of Passover, as there is for the other pilgrimage festivals of Sukkot, and Shavuot. On the last day of the holiday, next Tuesday, the Yizkor service, a memorial service for the dead is added to the service.

To Martha Lieberman, some advice to find happiness in your life: Cook up a nice meal, invite aRead More homeless person from your neighborhood to share and read a story from the Haggadah. That homeless person would feel like a Mensch again, and, imagine, you, yourself, delivered him/her from bondage. G-d would smile at you throughout the whole Seder meal. Shalom!

folks, please stop trashing the Mystical church of Jesus over the horrible mistakes of the CorporateRead More church - stop using pedophile priests to denigrate Jesus -- He already warned us all of the demonic forces. Why do you think pedophiles join the church? To tear it down.

@ Christie, you are correct on why these pedophile priests joined the church. The Blessed VirginRead More Mother appeared to the children of Fatima and demanded that the pope ,along with all the bishops of the world,to consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart. After Vatican II the church was swamped with many new priests... many devout communists, Marxists who had no intention of serving God but to destroy souls, ala pedophile priests, and shut down the Catholic Church to forge ahead with their godless communists agenda. Our Blessed Virgin Mother promises a long period of world peace when/if the consecration of Russia takes place. With a large amount of communists infiltrated in the upper ranks of the Vatican it will be a miracle if our current pope heeds the Blessed Mother and performs the consecration. Dominus Vobiscum

yes Buzz, let's hope! The devil's ultimate weapon has always been sexual deviants to humiliateRead More God's house... Believers need to rise above that + be spiritually mature lest they abandon the Absolute.

I have always been very honest and open with my kids ever since they could ask a question. Even at aRead More young age I have discussed slavery, sex, religion, gay relationships... Of course as they get older a little more information is provided. Having always been open and honest I never see any prejudice against anyone and I have seen them stand up for people when they needed to. The sooner you are honest and open with your children the sooner they learn to care and treat themselves and everyone with respect.
