Every spring, Susan Schnerb and her husband leave New York City for a food-centric week in, of all places, Reisterstown. The couple swears the meals are so delicious and so modern at the Pearlstone Conference and Retreat Center, they almost forget it's Passover, which begins Wednesday night - a beloved Jewish holiday but, with its ban on things like leavened bread, cake and pasta, not one widely praised for haute cuisine. "You always hear, 'It's Passover, and I can't have this and I can't have that,' " says Schnerb, a Baltimore native.

Baltimoreans have so many public treasures that are on the verge of being lost that we don't always stop and marvel when a cultural resource is actually saved. That's the case with Pearlstone Park, a sculpture park near the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall that represents one of the most significant works of environmental art by an acclaimed New York sculptor, Scott Burton. For most of the past two decades, this park was so poorly maintained that visitors couldn't appreciate it, if they ever came to see it at all. This fall, with little fanfare, it has been restored to the point where visitors can once again see what the artist designed and use it the way he intended.

Why is this vacation different from all others? Passover commemorates the Israelites' escape from slavery, but for some Jews, the weeklong holiday has come to mean toil they would just as soon leave behind. Instead of cleansing their houses of all leavened grains, unpacking dishes reserved for Passover and cooking traditional meals at home, an increasing number choose to pack their bags and spend the holiday at hotels, international resorts and on Caribbean cruises. This week, about 150 people are relaxing at the Pearlstone Conference and Retreat Center in Reisterstown, the third time conference staff have offered a Passover program.

More than 200 guests gathered at the Leaders for the New Millennium event to honor some of Baltimore's minority leaders for their accomplishments. The congratulations got an early start at a pre-awards reception in the theater mezzanine as guests mingled with some of the evening's honorees and nibbled on hors d'oeuvres like crab balls and barbecued shrimp.
