Ok you got me – I had to look up what Passover Seders were.
The Passover Seder is a family feast that begins the week of the Passover holiday.
From what I can tell, it is custom to read and retell the Passover story during this celebration of food, wine, and thanksgiving.
Life is too short. Let’s celebrate more milestones and memories, shall we.
Still though, Art Garfunkel as a cousin!
If you want to read the Passover story in full, see Exodus 11-13.
But his first passion was music. Pearlman’s cousin, the son of his father’s sister, was Art Garfunkel, of Simon and Garfunkel fame. Lou remembered Cousin Artie singing in Yiddish at the extended family’s Passover seders. He was thrilled when his famous cousin, thirteen years older, attended his bar mitzvah in 1967.
