Greetings, Gail-Friends! It's been a while since I did this weekly post, but I'm still thankful. I'll try to catch up on what's been happening at Golden Cottage.
I always enjoy watching the children when they search for the afikomen and go to the door to look for Elijah!
Our grandson was hilarious as he bargained with Rabbi Jem to redeem the afikomen. He wound up with $5.00.
We had a special guest duo for music this year. Rabbi Jem and our daughter, Amanda, played Amazing Grace together toward the end of the seder, and the congregation sang along. You can watch it at this LINK
Amanda also led us in singing Pharoah, Pharoah. We always have a good time singing about the children of Israel escaping from the pharaoh. Here's the LINK for that song.
Our son-in-love, William, took some beautiful photos. I love this one of the Torah. He's so talented.
This is the seder plate for the head table, which has the lamb shank bone, the bitter herbs, and the charoset. You can learn more about the significance of each item at this LINK.
This is the seder plate for each member of the congregation.
After the seder, we sang and danced in JOY for our Passover Lamb, Yeshua our Messiah. Then we took photos with this great frame made by one of our members. I'm so thankful for her and many others worked who worked very hard to make this event a big success. It's a lot of work, Gail-Friends, but so worth it.

This post is getting long, so I'll tell you more about Golden Cottage happenings next week. Blessings to you, Gail-Friends, and I'd love to hear about your seder or any good news you've had this week.
