Catholic kids learn about Easter by learning about Passover
Islip Terrace, N.Y. (The Long Island Catholic) - The tables were filled with matzoh and bitter herbs, and the rabbi prayed in Hebrew and Aramaic, but the participants in the demonstration Seder on March 9 were not Jewish; they were Catholic sixth-graders in the religious education program at St. Peter the Apostle Church here, learning about the Christian holy days of Easter and the Last Supper by learning about the Jewish holy day of Passover.
