He will be offering a virtual Passover service celebration on the 2nd night Saturday April 23 at 7:00pm Eastern Time. Followers around the world can join Rabbi Blane who will explain the significance of the items found on the seder plate; including the modern addition of an orange and using a beet instead of a shank-bone, giving a nod to Sim Shalom's partnership with Meatless Mondays.
