Breakfast was conventional -- made-to-order scrambled eggs, roasted potatoes and orange juice. The service, however, was not. For the third consecutive year, members of Beth El Congregation of Park Heights Avenue provided a Christmas week meal yesterday morning for about two dozen displaced women at a My Sister's Place drop-in center run by Catholic Charities. But the prospect of serving the city's homeless to celebrate a Christian holiday didn't seem to faze the members of the Jewish congregation.

On Passover, a tale for all generations Every spring, when more than 100 members of her family gather in a tent to celebrate Passover, Neile Friedman and a cousin try to introduce new elements to the Haggadah, or Seder script, they've used for more than two decades. But tonight, Friedman's family and hundreds of others in Baltimore will freshen the ancient tale with a new Haggadah, published by Pikesville's Beth El Congregation and designed to be more in tune with the times. "The Haggadah was becoming so old, it didn't speak to us anymore," said Friedman, who was head of a committee that developed the new one at Beth El. "It was a challenge to keep the children interested."

As Yom Kippur begins Tuesday evening, Gil Kleiner plans to be in services at the Beth El Congregation without his iPhone, which will be sitting silently in his office at the synagogue registering an ESPN mobile app alert every time the Orioles score a run in their pursuit of the American League East pennant. He wouldn't think of having the gadget with him during services on the most significant day of the Jewish calendar, but after, without turning on a television or computer, he says, "I can walk by it and take a peak, see what's going on. " So Kleiner, who is the Pikesville congregation's executive director, manages what was once a frequent tension for Jewish Orioles fans, with postseason or significant late-season games often falling during the High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
