LIVING HOME-LIFE ELEGANTLY – by Gary S. Smolker
Last night (April 22, 2016, the First Night of Passover), I attended a Seder at a friend’s home.
The Seder was held in the backyard and inside my friend’s home is in Trousdale Estates, Beverly Hills, California.
Below are photographs I took both before the Seder began and during the Seder.
The Table in the Backyard
A religious ceremony was held in the backyard before we came into the house to socialize and have dinner together.
The religious ceremony, which includes eating prescribed food, was held in the backyard.
Below are photographs of the table set up in the backyard at which we all sat while eating during the religious ceremony which Jews all over the world participate in while they celebrate Passover.
Socializing Before Dinner Is Served
After the religious ceremony finished we proceeded to go inside to socialize.
After they came inside some of the women sat down on couches surrounding a table on which were nuts and fruit to snack on.
Some people talked to other people while standing up.
People also talked to one another before dinner was served, various sitting rooms in the house.
Below is a picture of the hostess and her two daughters.
Below are three more pictures of her daughters.
Dinner was served buffet style.
Guests selected dishes to eat for dinner from a table laden with entrees and side dishes.
My Plate of Dishes
Below is a picture of what I put on my dinner plate to eat.
Everything was delicious.
