Passover and Easter, celebrated together in Wyandanch

Good Friday and the start of Passover fall on the same day this year, prompting some religious leaders to underscore the common ground of the Jewish and Christian religions. Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Catholic Church in Wyandanch hosted an interfaith seder on April 1, 2015, with a supper including Kosher-style Hispanic, African American, Haitian and European foods, as well as food prepared by members of Temple Beth Torah and a "Noah's Pudding" dessert provided by the Muslim Turkish Center.
