Sweetness Of Sisterhood

Nurturing chocolate and bitter red-hot candy provided

the symbols on Women's Seder plate.

n all other nights, we do not
dip our food even once; at the
2003 Women's Seder, we dip
our food twice — in chocolate.
An annual event of the Women's
Campaign and Education Department of
the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan
Detroit, the Women's Seder focuses on a
different aspect of the Passover story each
year. This year, the theme of the seder,
held April 2 at Adat Shalom
Synagogue, was "Nurturing Our
Bodies, Minds and Spirits."
"Today we remember all the nurtur-
ing women of Exodus -- the midwives
Shifra and Yochved; Moses' sister
Miriam; Moses' mother; Pharaohs
daughter," said Rabbi Lauren Berkun
of Shaarey Zedek Synagogue.
"We care, we listen, we hug and
wipe away tears. The most important
question is: How do we nurture our-
selves?"
On the podium with
Rabbi Berkun was Lisa
Soble Siegmann, direc-
tor of the Agency for
Jewish Education's
Jewish Experiences for
Families, who led the
500 women in spirited
song.
This was the largest
crowd ever for the
Women's Seder, which is
celebrating its sixth year.
"It's a wonderful event,"
said Judee Heiman of
West Bloomfield. "My
friend and I have been
coming since the very
first one."
In addition to using chocolate sauce,
the seder included chocolate chip
charoset (apple, nut and wine paste);
alternated cups of grape juice with cups
of chocolate phosphate; and, instead of
bitter herbs, provided chewy red-hot
candy.
"There was such a feeling of warmth
and camaraderie," said Maxine Bresler
of West Bloomfield. "I was here with
my future daughter-in-law, and we did-
n't know anyone else at our table. But
we loved getting to know them "-- they
were all such wonderful people."
