Shofar Sho Good!

Here’s Alan at the Seder meal, with his shofar [ram’s horn trumpet]


He has obviously practised much and got a good note from it.

But I don’t think Peter will be joining our Sunday Worship Team just yet! [Mind you, he did get some sound out of it, more than I could have done!]


People enjoyed the Seder demonstration, and the meal that followed. Here’s Bob, offering the horseradish to some of our Anglican friends [the less said about the eye-watering, mouth-searing horseradish, the better!]


And Andy pouring drinks for the ladies on the next table


Thank you to Alan, from CWI for helping us understand the Seder meal, and the way the Jews celebrate Pesach [Passover]


Everybody really got involved in the clearing up afterwards which made the task much easier. We had lots of laughs together in the kitchen. Special thanks to Pam who sorted out all the plates by colour as they were put away, Paul who was working at the sink long after many others had left, and Sue who was on her knees for ages cleaning the oven [I confess I had overfilled the trays of chicken and the sauce had oozed out and made a disgusting mess!]

I wasn’t 100% sure of numbers, so catered for 60 [we had sent out 60 tickets to the churches] but only 48 people came. That was fine – but there was some food left over. Which is why I was making vegetable soup at 11pm on Thursday night, so the peas, carrots and potatoes would not go to waste!


  1. Now that's some trumpet!!!
    happy Easter!

  2. Wow, that's great. I'd love to partake of a seder meal.

  3. You don't blow the shofar on Passover; that's done on Rosh Hashanah, and at the end of Yom Kippur.


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
