Model Seder for New Falashmura Olim

In preparation for their first Passover in Israel, two hundred new immigrants from Ethiopia attended a model Seder today at the Jewish Agency Absorption Center in Mevasseret Zion outside Jerusalem.

The Seder was presided over by Jewish Agency chair, Natan Sharansky and President and Founder of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein. It was designed to provide an introductory look at a traditional celebration prior to the beginning of the holiday.

On Monday night, 5,000 new immigrants from Ethiopia will attend Seder meals at 20 Jewish Agency absorption centers across Israel.
