Communists to Stage “sederless” Pesach

February 19, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

According to the Communistic Yiddish organ “Emes” the Communists are planning to celebrate the festival of Passover with a carnival propagating natural science instead of the traditional Seder and unleaved bread.

Christmas was observed in a similar fashion by the Communists, who announce that the Easter and the Moslem “Muharam” will be celebrated in the same anti-religious spirit.
