As Rabbi Simon talks the Seder meal will be demonstrated with samples of Passover foods available to guests. Rabbi Simon welcomes questions and would like to invite those who have no experience with either the Jewish or Christian faith to take part. The Program will be held at Harriet Chapel, 12625 Catoctin Furnace Road just south of Thurmont. A free will offering will be taken up to defray Rabbi Simon's expenses.
