ROANOKE,Va. -

The Passover meal referred to as the Seder is more than just a meal for the Jewish community. It's a history lesson for a faith delivered from a dark time.

Marci Brumberg has been working for days on a Passover feast for more than thirty people. Though food is the center of attention there a deeper means for observing today.

“The most important thing is that we remember that our forefathers, the Israelites were slaves in Egypt and that God freed us,” said Brumberg.

The importance of history is not only told in the stories at the table but even in the food itself. Each food has it’s of own representation, some of struggle and some of triumph.

At the Seder, all these things have a lot of significance. And we eat them and we do things with them during the Seder,” said Brumberg.

The youngest will ask the four traditional questions at the table and answers will give the child insight of the importance of the meal.

It's one of the most important parts of Jewish history. The enslavement in Egypt was one our dark moments, and that God remembered our enslavement and brought us out,” said Brumberg. “Not only that, a few weeks after this, God according to our tradition gave us the most precious thing that God has gave, the five books of Moses.
