  • LAJC to host Passover Seder

    The Los Alamos Jewish Center will hold its annual community Passover Seder at 5:30 p.m. March 26 at the Betty Ehart Senior Center.
    The event is open to anyone interested in attending.
    The Seder is a ceremonial dinner filled with rituals designed to celebrate the Jewish people’s exodus from Egypt.
    The Seder, which is Hebrew for “order,” ushers in the week of Pesach, in which Jews refrain from eating chametz.
    The celebration of Passover commemorates the delivery of the Jews from years of slavery, ultimately culminating in the birth of the “Torah,” the “Five Books of Moses,” at Mount Sinai.
    Thus, for Jews all over the world, the annual time of renewal is an opportunity to look at themselves and society through the lens of the slave, once again.
    It is a time to let go of all prejudice, intolerance, closed mindedness and limited thinking. It is a time for renewed inspiration to help create a world that is free for all peoples and all religions.
    This year, Rabbi Jack Shlachter of the Los Alamos Jewish Center, will lead the Community Seder as an evening of ritual, dedicated to the memory of the Exodus from Mitzrayim, or Egypt, and the freedom and respect for everyone.

  • 'The Gospel According to Mark'

    An estimated 6,001,500,000 Holy Bibles have been printed. Before the Gutenberg Bible was printed in 1450, however, most of the illiterate population’s access to the Bible was purely oral: a Jewish storytelling tradition that grew in the homes of the early Christian church and was later professed to the populace by church authorities.
    “The Gospel According to Mark,” a dramatic one-person performance by Jeffrey Favorite at 7:30 p.m. today and Saturday at Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church, brings the tradition to Los Alamos.
    Favorite’s fascination with the oral telling of Mark’s gospel has been simmering for seven years. In 2005, his solo performance of “Damien” at Los Alamos Little Theatre tested both his memory and his theatrical skills and whetted his appetite for more. A close friend from Massachusetts, Prof. Victor Hill, mentioned a modern day trend of verbatim performances of the “Gospel of Mark,” and Favorite found a few renditions on YouTube. It was not until November 2012, though, when a friend at Trinity on the Hill raised the possibility of the performance as an outreach to the Los Alamos community, that Favorite took the plunge.

  • Blini breakfast at St. Dimitri

    St. Dimitri Orthodox Church will host its Annual Blini Breakfast March 17.
    Russian blini, a type of thin pancake, will be served in traditional style with smoked salmon, herring, butter and sour cream. Vegetable caviar, eggs, cheese and a variety of berry preserves will also be available.
    Blini are traditionally served in Slavic households during the week before the beginning of the Lenten Fast. Thin crepe-like pancakes are traditionally eaten with fish, sour cream and butter in order to consume all these foods before the beginning of Great Lent.
    Fish and dairy products, along with meat, are not eaten during the 40-day Great Fast period preceding Easter or Pascha, as it is called among Orthodox Christians. The practice was recorded in Biblical times, Christ having fasted in the desert for 40 days.
    The practice of “fasting, together with prayer, almsgiving and the preparation that the additional services during Lent, is the true readying for the great feast of Pascha, the Resurrection of Our Lord,” said Fr. John Hennies, attached priest of St. Dimitri Orthodox Church.

  • Fr. John bids Los Alamos farewell

     

    To the faithful readership, I regret to say that this will be the last column in the Los Alamos Monitor. I have been assigned to an Orthodox Church in Texas. 

    It has been a joy to be a contributor to this religion column. Thank you to all who have kept up with the column and shared your comments and feedback.

    Please know that for those who are interested, I will continue publishing on my blog called “Eden and Nod.” The address is edenandnod.blogspot.com.

    Frequently, we have to deal with the grief that comes when a friend or loved one moves away. 

    The experience is akin to that which occurs when we a loved one dies.
