CCJ is the UK's oldest national Jewish/Christian interfaith organisation, committed to addressing antisemitism and promoting Jewish/Christian dialogue.


The Jewish Way in Death and Mourning
Can Christians learn from the highly regulated patterns of grieving practised by observant Jews? How does a Jewish funeral proper compare and contrast with a Christian one?
When is Seder not a Seder?
Does this put Christians in touch with their ‘Jewish roots’, or involve something of a ‘colonial takeover’ of a Jewish practice which in at least some respects is probably centuries later than Jesus? Patrick led a candid discussion.

Pesach (Passover) is the annual festival of the liberation of the People of Israel from slavery in Egypt, as recorded in Exodus. The 'seder' - the ordered ritual meal on 1st and 2nd nights - is laden with meaning of practical and spiritual liberation. Pesach requires a lot of preparation as homes must be free of all 'chametz' - yeast and yeast-containing produce. Pesach lasts for 8 days, although work can be performed on days 3-7 (2-7 in Israel).
