April 16, 2022 | The Importance of the Afikomen in the Passover Seder


Importance of the Afikomen

Most of us are celebrating Easter on Sunday, but this weekend is also the beginning of Passover. This week we’re studying this sacred holiday God gave the Israelites in the book of Exodus. Chris helped lead The Friends of Israel’s online Passover Seder this past week, which demonstrates the meaning and methods of the meal to help you celebrate Passover with your friends and family. Today he shares the importance of the afikomen.

The afikomen is one of the pieces of matzoh on the Seder table. It’s fun for children—they search for the afikomen hidden in the home to redeem it for a prize. But it’s more meaningful for adults as a picture of unity. And for believers, it’s an even more poignant picture of the Trinity, God in three Persons. Tune in to enrich your knowledge of Jewish culture, biblical celebration, and symbols of our faith!

Online Passover Seder

We invite you to gather your friends and family and join us in our online Passover Seder! With every bite and taste during the Seder, you’ll reflect on the perfect innocence of Jesus, our Passover Lamb, who died to take away the sins of the world. You won’t want to miss FOI’s Steve Herzig and Chris Katulka walk you through this Jewish tradition packed with incredible meaning for Christians today.


Apples of Gold: Zeal Without Knowledge

Journey back to when Zvi Kalisher worked at Mount Scopus near the University of Jerusalem. An Orthodox student was dismayed at the lack of knowledge his fellow students possessed about Passover. He looked to Zvi, the only other Jew he could find at the moment, for help in distributing informational booklets so that they may know. Zvi, however, was more concerned that this young man and his fellow students come to know Jesus the Messiah.
