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.

I was perplexed to see The Sun carry a wire service photo about the Passover "Burning of Leaven" in Israel but no coverage of the exact same ceremony on a much larger scale right here in Baltimore. Every year on the day before Passover, there is a huge leaven burning ceremony at Pimlico Race Course attended by hundreds, if not thousands, of people. Your coverage (or rather the lack thereof) gives the impression that this ceremony is conducted only in Israel when, in fact, it is observed all over the world wherever Jews live.

Members of the Jewish community gathered in a parking lot at Pimlico Race Course on Monday morning and tossed leavened leftovers into more than two dozen incinerating barrels, burning to a crisp items including slices of pizza and boxes of Cheerios. Bert Miller of Park Heights, who parted with a piece of bread, proclaimed it one of the largest nationwide gatherings for the annual burning of chametz, or leavened foods that cannot be consumed during Passover, the observance of the exodus of Jews from Egypt.

Editor's note: One girl follows her senses and asks questions about all she encounters during the Passover celebration. I hear my father singing in a deep, rumbly voice. "Dy-dy-enu, dy-dy-enu," he sings in Hebrew. "It would be enough." His song is loud and happy. I know it is time to get ready for Passover. I help my mother carry boxes out of the closet. Every year I help and every year I ask, "What's in this box?" "Use your eyes and find out," my mother always answers. So I do. Very carefully, I cut the string, lift the lid and I can see Passover!

WHY is it," my father asks, "that I can picture clearly something I did 75 years ago, and I can't tell you what I had for dinner last night?"Dad muses aloud as he settles into his favorite recliner. Eighty-eight years have not shrunk his 6-foot frame or narrowed his broad shoulders, and he fills the big chair, now worn to the curves of his body.I balance a tape recorder on the arm rest, tap the microphone, double check to be sure the volume is turned up.My father is right about the persistence of childhood memories.

Passover and Easter have much in common and this year they even fall on the same weekend. So it seems appropriate to acknowledge their relationship with a menu that can serve for both holidays.Though exact details are lost, in the ancient world people celebrated nature festivals at the time of the spring equinox, the same time we observe Passover and Easter. Passover embodies the concepts of freedom associated with the deliverance of the Jews from slavery and the exodus from Egypt while Easter commemorates the death and resurrection of Christ.

PERHAPS the most symbolic of all Jewish holidays, Passover above all celebrates redemption.This is the time to remember deliverance from Egypt, to appreciate the renewal of spring, to contemplate the meaning of freedom.For Jonathan Pollard, the American found guilty of passing classified information to Israel, Passover is even more poignant. Still three years shy of 40, he sits in solitary confinement in a mum-security federal penitentiary, having been sentenced to life in prison with a recommendation that he never be paroled.

One-year-old Daniel Herman isn't a big fan of matzo, said his mother, Ahuva Herman. But any lingering fussiness from the past eight days disappeared Sunday as Daniel got his baby teeth into a piece of egg bagel. He bounced and giggled on his mother's lap as he gnawed away happily at Goldberg's New York Bagels in Pikesville. The Hermans, from Queens, N.Y., were in town to visit family for Passover. They were among the hordes of Jewish families that descended on kosher eateries such as Goldberg's, David Chu's China Bistro and Tov Pizza late Saturday night and early Sunday morning, looking to break their fast on yeast breads after the end of Passover at sundown.

Passover is seen traditionally as a holiday of the spring, not usually marked by snow. But Howard Kaplan and his wife, Roberta, of Baltimore, wouldn't let Monday's inclement conditions deter them from coming to the Pimlico Race Course to dispose of their leavened food. "Snow won't hold anybody up," she said. Baltimore-area families burned their chametz Monday morning in observation of Passover. The holiday commemorates God's freeing the Israelites from slavery in Egypt more than 3,000 years ago. Because the Jewish people had to leave Egypt quickly, they had to eat their bread before it had risen.

During Passover, the holiday that begins tonight, observant Jews avoid eating leavened bread and all other foods whose ingredients rise during preparation. That means doing without some of the modern diet's tastiest staples, from bagels and pizza to pasta and a tall, cold beer. So strict is the prohibition on chametz that Jews are barred during Passover even from owning it - a fact that leaves many scrambling to find and purge every bread crumb in the house. There are many ways to dispose of the banned items: Some burn them, some eat them all and some throw them away.

Gilda Weinfeld from Pikesville said that last year during Passover, an acquaintance sent her some homemade chocolate-covered matzo. She said it was absolutely delicious. But when she called her friend to thank her for the gift, she asked for the recipe - and her friend politely declined to give it to her. Not to worry - there are plenty of good recipes for homemade chocolate matzo both online and in print. My go-to recipe for this holiday treat comes from "A Treasury of Jewish Holiday Baking" by Marcy Goldman.

As members of the B'nai Israel Congregation in downtown Baltimore on Sunday discussed preparations for the start of Passover, they also reflected on President Barack Obama's recent visit to Israel. "It was a wonderful thing that the president went to Israel and showed his support for the state of Israel," said Rabbi Etan Mintz of B'nai Israel Congregation. Today begins Passover, an eight-day festival commemorating Jews' emancipation from slavery in Egypt. The holiday is celebrated with Seders, symbolic foods and the recitation of the story of the Exodus from Egypt.

For Lisa and Stuart Schabes and their family, Passover is a time to celebrate the tenets of their faith. It's also a time when Lisa Schabes spends several days preparing festive, sumptuous meals in her spacious kosher kitchen. These specialty kitchens have layout and design elements that aid Orthodox Jews in upholding traditional dietary laws. "I've had it about seven or eight years, and it was a long time coming — my husband was very generous to me," said Schabes, a mother of five and educator who resides in the Cheswolde community in Northwest Baltimore.
