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.

WHEN THE congregation of Eutaw Place Baptist Church moved from Bolton Hill to Baltimore County in 1969, members adopted a growth strategy that many churches followed at the time.They built a fellowship hall and education center that could double as a worship setting for the church, renamed Woodbrook Baptist, and deferred construction of the main sanctuary until they raised enough money to do the job right.Twenty-seven years later, they're still worshiping in the "temporary" hall -- but not for much longer.

Clifton Alexander drove all the way from South Carolina to the church at 25 Stevenson Lane in Towson to surprise Cochran on Sunday, Sept.

At first, the wife wasn't sure. With so many houses on the market, an English manor-style estate at 10 Estes Road, nestled in the coveted Woodbrook neighborhood just north of the Baltimore City line, didn't grab her attention.

Last summer, when the paving trucks showed up, fans of the Maryland & Pennsylvania Railroad deservedly got a little nervous. The object of their veneration is a sliver of railroad track that bisects North Charles Street in the Woodbrook neighborhood of Baltimore County. Thousands of drivers who pass over the track every day probably have no idea what it was and where it went. It is left over from the days when the Ma & Pa zigzagged for 77.2 miles across the Maryland countryside from Baltimore to York, Pa. That track, which was left unpaved, is where a head-on collision shattered the tranquillity of a late-spring Saturday afternoon.
