GREENWICH - Temple Sholom in Greenwich held an interfaith Seder Friday night to celebrate the fact that Passover and Easter fall on the same weekend this year.

Nearly 200 people were expected to attend. Leaders from both the temple and Christ Church Greenwich hosted the Seder.

The meal represents the Israelites' exodus from slavery in Egypt.

Religious leaders say the event is all about bringing people together, no matter what their religious beliefs are.

"They're both spring feasts," said Rev. Dr. James Lemler. "They're both feasts that are very focused on life and renewal."
