Brisket is always a favorite at Passover season. In fact my family would always prepare a roast brisket for the Passover Seder. Here is the recipe my grandma used, my mom used, and now I use.
Grandma Belle’s Matzah Brie
Matzah Ball Soup
This soup, favored by the Ashkenazic Jews, is made from a mixture of matzah meal and chicken fat and is the traditional soup served on Passover. In some Jewish homes, soft noodles will be added to the soup, along with carrots and sometimes celery, etc.
Tzimmes (TSIM-ess) is one of those Jewish dishes that doesn’t sound good when reading the ingredients, but one taste of this gooey, sticky, roasted vegetable dish will have you wanting more! The sweetness of this dish reminds us of the sweetness of redemption.
Macaroons are made every Passover season. They are unleavened and the egg whites mixed with the coconut binds the cookie together. This recipe allows the sugar to spread to the edges and caramelize. These cookies are so easy to make, yet they taste so good. For a variation, add the cocoa powder to the mixture and make chocolate macaroons.
Charoset (khah-ROH-set) is a sweet apple mixture made with dates, nuts, and honey. This symbolizes the mortar used in Egypt for making bricks.
How to Host a Seder
Perhaps you have heard of our Passover Seder presentations or even attended one of them. Whether it was by personal witness, word of mouth, or even just curiosity, you may have thought, “Could I do this in my home or in my church?” Perhaps you have wondered, “Where would I begin?”

Watch our virtual Messiah in the Passover Seder!
Experiencing a Seder will enrich your faith in Messiah and give you a greater appreciation for your biblical heritage. Plus, this is a great opportunity to experience something Jesus did with His disciples. Not only that, but the Bible says that it was something that He had been waiting for: “I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer” (Luke 22:15).
