Traditional rituals of Passover — the stories, the questions, the food — get a modern spin when Rabbi Geoff Basik presides over Kol HaLev's community seder. The second night observance, held this year on April 15, has become a tradition for the Reconstructionist synagogue congregation. Kol HaLev annually invites members of Brown Memorial Presbyterian Church on North Charles Street, where Jewish community is located, to join the celebration. It is one of the ways Kol HaLev seeks to reach out into the broader community.

Part lecture, part performance art, part dialogue with the audience and part traditional drama, Theatre Company Jerusalem's "Esther" is a little like seeing sections of the Talmud, the ancient Jewish commentaries on the Old Testament, acted out on stage. In this idiosyncratic one-woman show, however, the commentaries have a strong feminist slant and draw parallels to the Holocaust. The thought-provoking show has arrived at the Theatre Project just in time to serve as a lead-in to the Jewish holiday of Purim, which celebrates the story of Esther.

I am happy that you did not mention Mag-Lev in your editorial on high speed rail ( "Working on the railroad," Jan. 23). The proposed Baltimore-Washington Mag-Lev would be a disaster partly because it would be incompatible with all existing railroad track and trains. On the other hand, high speed rail is completely compatible with our existing system. Although new track would be needed in some areas, much existing track can be upgraded to the higher standards. Trains can use existing track to enter cities and stations.

In the Kitchen Encounters feature in yesterday's A La Carte section, the name of systems analyst Ron Leve was misspelled.The Sun regrets the error.Who says single men don't cook? Ron Lev prepares soups and stews your mother would envy. In fact, he expects his epitaph will label him "Souperman," thanks to all the soups he's shared with neighbors and friends.Lev, a systems analyst at Fort Meade, made the transformation from mere recipe-reading chemist to verified cook years ago while hovering over a soup pot."

IN THE wake of the horrific events of Sept. 11, there has been a great deal of debate about how to prevent airline hijackings. I decided to seek advice from someone who has done just that -- a retired El Al captain named Uri Bar-Lev. He was caught up in a mass airline hijacking that occurred exactly 31 years ago to the week before the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. In September 1970, the Palestine Liberation Organization seized control of four airliners over Europe, flew them to Jordan and Egypt, and then blew them up. Fortunately the passengers were released unharmed -- but not before being used as bargaining chips to win the release of PLO terrorists held in European jails.

The Orientalist: Solving The Mystery of a Strange and Dangerous Life By Tom Reiss. Random House. 409 pages. $25.95. The Orientalist tells the strange and sometimes incredible tale of Lev Nussimbaum, a Russian-Jewish writer, born into luxury in oil-rich and cosmopolitan Baku, but driven from home as a child by the early Bolshevik raids. The family went first by camel caravan eastward to Turkistan, then westward to Constantinople and north to Europe. Wherever they lived, hell was just breaking loose.

THE FORCED resignation of controversial President Levon Ter-Petrosian threatens to derail complicated efforts to ease hostilities between largely Christian Armenia and its nominally Islamic neighbor, Azerbaijan.Theirs is not a dispute that arises from religious differences, but a quarrel that involves contested territory and centuries of historical animosities. It now has all the potential of rekindling a regional crisis.Mr. Ter-Petrosian was an arbitrary leader who most probably cheated his way into re-election in 1996.
