Photograph article dated April 26, 1962 partially reads, "The lighting at sundown Wednesday of festival candles at the Seder Table commemorated the beginning of Passover, the Festival of Freedom, for Jews throughout the world. The Seder Service is observed in Jewish homes the first and second days of Passover, when the youngest child in the family asks four traditional questions about the holiday. Answers to these questions explain the meaning of Passover symbols and tell of the escape of the Jews from Egypt, their adventures at the Red Sea and in the desert. The remainder of the service is devoted to responses by the family group from the Hagaddah, a prayer book containing stories, interpretations, songs and prayers." Pictured are Joani Dinerstein, 4, and Rabbi Morris D. Margolis (forefront), and Lester Dinerstein, Mrs. Bernard Dinerstein, Mrs. Margolis, Cecelia and Stephen Wolf, seated at the Sedar Table, from left.
