Parishioners at St. Michael the Archangel Church, Woodstock, learned about the connection between the Jewish festival of Passover and the Eucharist during a Holy Week Seder celebration that featured Israeli folk dancers, a children’s choir and a traditional Seder meal.

Zechariah Ministries, which conducted the event and shares these celebrations throughout the Atlanta Archdiocese, is based at the parish.

The evening was concluded with an invitation for all present to dance to “Hava Nagila.” Zechariah Ministries is seeking additional children and adult members with dance experience, especially boys. They may be contacted at
