A Centennial Seder

Marilyn's great-uncle Nathan Siegel
Several years ago, Marilyn Salasky Siegel of Norfolk, Virginia, was reading a book about Norfolk's Jewish community and recognized one of the photos in the book as members of her family.  The photo was of a Passover seder in 1911.  This year, Marilyn and about 50 members of her family commemorated the centennial of that photo by having a special seder in a Norfolk Caribbean restaurant that is housed in a former Orthodox synagogue.  You can read the article about Marilyn and the photo online.

My thanks to Ava Cohn for posting information about this article.
