… it’s Seder-Day Night!

Happy Easter, everyone!

Three days before we celebrated Easter, my church, Calvary Bible Church in Burbank, held a Seder, the traditional Jewish celebration of Passover.  Why celebrate Passover?  Because as Christians, it’s part of our heritage as well.  We have the Old Testament, Moses, the Ten Commandments, the exodus from Egypt, all of it.

Aside from that, it gives me a chance to serve in the church kitchen.  As Vincent Reinhart can attest, I love cooking, especially when I can serve beside two professional chefs.

While other volunteers set up the tables, a team of ten of us worked in the kitchen.  The first thing I did was take five boxes of Matza ball mix and make the dough.  Good thing I was always good at math because I had to multiply the instructions on the box by 16.

Once the dough was left to set, I helped out with the scalloped potatoes.  Starting with peeling 25 pounds of potatoes, fortunately, not by myself.  These gentlemen sliced the potatoes…

… and put them in the trays.  I then poured the heavy whipping cream on them, salt, and pepper and covered them with foil for the oven.

Towards the end of their baking, they are covered with cheese.  This is what the end product looks like.

While these ladies rolled the matza balls,

I boiled them in broth.

At thirty at a time, it took us to the start of the Seder at 6:30 pm.

We also served mixed vegetables…

And brisket.


One of the blessings of working in the kitchen is that I learn new recipes from the chefs.   I can’t wait to make the scallops at home for Kris.

The Seder is conducted by Marty Wolf.  He grew up Jewish and converted to Christianity, so he explains both the traditional Jewish and Christian symbolism in the Seder.  Fortunately, once we’re done cooking, we can listen in as we wait to serve.
