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.

The snow on the day after the Christian observance of Palm Sunday and the first day of the Jewish observance of Passover was certainly an unusual occurrence in Harford County. The most vital of holidays for both faiths are very closely associated with springtime and the re-emergence of life. In Passover, the coming of age of the Jewish nation is celebrated as it signifies the Hebrew nation's departure from the despair of slavery in Egypt to freedom in a Promised Land, a territory flowing with milk and honey.

During the Passover Seder, which will be celebrated after sundown tonight by Jews worldwide, the central question, traditionally asked by the youngest at the table, is, "Why is this night different from all other nights?" But a more common query, asked by hungry relatives bored by the long Seder ritual that comes before dinner, often is, "When are we going to eat?" The antidote is to make the story of the exodus from Egypt, told in a Passover text called a Haggada, as engaging as possible.

Since I started writing about religion, I've wanted to attend a Passover Seder, one of the most joyous celebrations in the Jewish faith.I wanted to experience the service for myself and bring a better understanding to my writing.I knew my Bible stories.I knew that Moses had been spared when Pharaoh had ordered all male Hebrew children be killed and had beenraised by the ruler's daughter.I knew that Moses had grown to realize his true heritage, to demand the release of his people and to lead them out of Egypt.

Tonight at sundown, Jewish military personnel serving in the Persian Gulf will gather on aircraft carriers, in mess halls, in canvas tents or simply around a Humvee for a celebration of a liberation. Pausing for the Passover seder, the warriors will mark the exodus of their ancestors from slavery in Egypt. "Coming together [for a seder] in this biblical land, rich with history from the Old Testament, combined with the happiness I see every day in the Iraqi people now that they are free from the oppressive regime of Saddam Hussein, brings warmth to my heart and a smile to my face," Maj. Jonas Vogelhut wrote in an e-mail interview from his post outside Baghdad.

"This is the bread of affliction which our ancestors ate in the land of Egypt. Let those who are hungry come in and partake. Let all who are in need come and celebrate the Passover." These words will be uttered around the world tonight as Jewish families gather around their tables for the Passover Seder, a ritual celebrating the deliverance of the ancient Hebrews from slavery. What was once a mandate to feed the poor has evolved into a tradition for many of inviting people - often complete strangers, who would otherwise be alone - to their Seders.

ALTHOUGH Passover doesn't begin until March 27, residents of Vantage House, a retirement community in Town Center, participated in a Seder last week, sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Howard County and the Cantors' Association of Greater Baltimore. "The purpose of holding the Seder is not only to recall the events of the Exodus from Egypt, which happened some 3,300 years ago, but to actually relive those events, to feel as if we had been slaves in Egypt ourselves and that we had been freed, liberated from slavery," said Abe Golinkin, one of three cantors who participated in the Seder at Vantage House.
