PEZAHK for JEWISH, HOLY WEEK for christians

>> Friday, April 03, 2009

HAG PEZAHK ZAMEIYAHK as the greetings I can hear around and everywhere in this place.Every year they are gathering together to have a special dinner for all members of the family and sometimes thier guest and friends are coming to celebrate with them. In my workplace we (I was invited always due to my employer's need) gather in the dinning room to watch the prepared programs by the members of these village that consist of all ages joining on the stage performance.They called it "LAILA ZEDER" so I was enjoying and always be as this is one part of my treasure here in holy land.Aside from that of course they are praying and candle lighting before they start everything what they have prepared.They have special foods for the whole week- as you can see the image above and they followed strictly of not eating something that contains flour as they called it "kemahk".Every manufactured food should written as "kosher" that they allowed to eat especially those religious families.

In my understanding "Laila Zeder" for Jewish and "LAST SUFFER" for christians.They have both commons in praying the whole week but only differ in food we eat. In christians ,especially to those have sacrifices are avoiding to eat meat while in here  they served thier dinner a lot of meat and thier special fish called "carpion". Even in supermarkets or any stores they are covering the space where the flour products are displayed.
