Your Hosts: THE BUTLER FAMILY -- Our 5th year! • Call for a color brochure
Diane: I remember making charoset for
our childhood seders for years and years.
We always had our grandparents and
cousins over for the first seder, and my
mother took out her special china and
crystal, which usually were stored safely
away from little children.
On the second night, we always went
to communal seders. Because I grew up
in a small Jewish community, we knew
everyone at the seder and had a great
Staci: They made a HUGE impact on
me. During my elementary years, I lived
in Macon, Ga., and all of my dad's fam-
ily lived there, as well.
The two elder statesmen of the family
sat together at one end of the table and
the wife of the host family at the other.
At least 20 people gathered around
the table; and each person took a turn
reading. The room was silent (in our
family you had to be 7 years old before
you could attend a seder) as people
read. The youngest child always got up
to do the Four Questions — one almost
felt like he or she was being judged.
During the meal everyone talked and
laughed, we finished the seder with
songs that were fun and traditional and
with "Hatikvah" and "God Bless
There was a tone and feeling set by
my great uncle Dave, with his broken
accent and great knowledge and wis-
dom, that I am reminded of every year.
I miss this, and try and carry a little
of this with me every year to my seder.
Roberta: I remember the seders at my
mother's parents' apartment.
Grandpa led the seders, with songs
supplied by opera singers on 78 rpm
records. Grandma made everything
from scratch, including the gefilte fish.
Grandpa gave me strong hints so I
could find the afikomen (hidden piece
of matzah). He died when I was 8, but
Grandma lived to hold her first great-
Ione: Whatever the occasion, including
Passover, when it meant being with my
grandparents and other extended family
members it was the greatest time for me
and for them, I do believe. For there is
nothing as important in the universe as
family, and where is that more apparent
than at the seder? ❑
