First night of Passover and Good Friday bonding.

On this holy day for so many, check out this great article from “Passover and Good Friday through Easter go together like a hand and a glove,” says David Kraemer, librarian and professor of Talmud and rabbinics at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York. “They’re actually designed to go together.”

(Jerusalem) – Archaeologists and researchers say Leonardo Da Vinci’s painting of The Last Supper doesn’t paint an accurate picture of what was served. Eels and orange slices appear in the famed painting. However, eels and oranges were a common pairing in 15th-century Italy and were on Da Vinci’s grocery lists. Christian scripture says Jesus passed unleavened bread and wine around the table teaching his disciples that the wine and the bread would become the sacrificial lamb by which sins are forgiven to be reconciled with God. Archaeologists in Israel say the Passover Seder could have also included bitter herbs, figs, olive oil and honey. In 2007, then Pope Benedict the 16th theorized the Last Supper took place before the ritual sacrifice of the lambs so the meal likely didn’t include lamb.
