A “camping out” seder?

1944_Harrisburg Telegraph_p.2 or 3_Apr 3Monday, April 3, 1944

Easter Sunday is in a week and Passover starts the evening before. Grocery stores are still advertising specials on ham for Easter dinner and Pomeroy’s has a special on women’s suits. Tonight we’ll listen to the great Wagnerian soprano Helen Traubel on “The Telephone Hour.” Even a war with Germany hasn’t killed the American love of classical music and opera. Tomorrow my mother will go into Harrisburg for matzo while my father sees if he can get a chicken at the PX. We’ll have a “camp out” seder in our hotel but we’ll still be better off than the Hebrews when they fled Egypt – or the Jews still trapped in Europe.
