Messianic Passover Seder at the Jerusalem Center Tonight




It’s only ordinary unleavened bread

Ordinary matzoh

On an earthen plate

It probably came

From a supermarket shelf

A Manischewitz box

Ordinary matzoh

Blessed for Passover

Oh, but when I take it

And cradle it lovingly

In my hands

Break it and bless it

It is for me

Most Holy Bread

Good Friday Bread

Body of the Lamb that was slain

With my cup of Redemption

Communion Bread

Lechem without hametz

Without yeast of sin




Shrouded afikomen


Then resurrected

With glory

I partake

Alleluia, alleluia

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!


This poem was published in William W. Francis’ book, Celebrate the Feasts of The Lord. Crest Books.

A Messianic Passover Seder will take place this evening, 8 p.m., at Beth Israel Worship Center/The Jerusalem Center, 11 Railroad Avenue, Wayne, NJ. All are welcome.
