Passover (Pesach) is commemorated by a Passover seder. The haggadah is read. Seder plates, matzah plates, Elijah cups, Miriam cups, matzah covers are used. Kosher and Israeli wines are used for the seder & the meals. Wines make great host & hostess gifts. We have an extensive selection of hagaddahs.
The Structure of the Good Society (Yitro 5775)
by Rabbi Jonathan sacks
In the House of Lords there is a special chamber used, among other things, as the place where new peers are robed before their introduction into the House. When my predecessor Lord Jakobovits was introduced, the official robing him commented that he was the first rabbi to be honoured in the Upper House. Lord Jakobovits replied, “No, I am the second.” “Who was the first?” asked the surprised official. Lord Jakobovits pointed to the large mural that decorates the chamber and gave it its name. It is known as the Moses Room because of the painting that dominates the room. It shows Moses bringing the Ten Commandments down from Mount Sinai. So Moses was the first rabbi to adorn the House of Lords.View Article
