On Monday March 30th 2015, the Frankston Interfaith Network in conjunction with the Jewish Christian Muslim Association of Australia (JCMA) and Frankston Uniting Church organised an Interfaith Model Seder - a celebration of the Jewish Festival of Passover.
Approximately 80 people attended the function which was led by Helen Gardner of the Jewish Christian Muslim Association of Australia (JCMA). It was a wonderful experience to be given the opportunity guided by Helen to partake in the rituals of the meal in which Jewish families celebrate Passover as well as to sample the food.
It was definitely much more than 'a taste', we all relished the delicious, very generous kosher serves of the many courses presented and served to us in the beautifully set up reception area of the Frankston Uniting Church.
Frankston Interfaith Network acknowledges with thanks the hard work, dedication and enthusiasm contributed by Helen Gardner as well as the amazing team at High St Uniting Church Rev. Jay Robinson, Rev. Robert Johnson, his wife Chrissie and the team of young helpers, and Ginette Everest Executive Officer of the Jewish Christian Muslim Association of Australia.
