    WARWICK—Tracy Rapp, speaking on behalf of the group Jews for Jesus, will answer the question "What do the Jewish Passover and Jesus' Last Supper have in common?" in a presentation at Warwick Assembly of God on Friday, March 25 at 7 p.m. Using a visual display of traditional Passover accouterments, the "Christ in the Passover" presentation offers Christians an understanding and appreciation of the Jewish background of the Christian Communion. A table is set with the traditional Jewish Passover items, including representative foods, which are explained but not eaten. The ceremonial seder plate, the three-compartment pouch in which the matzo (unleavened bread) is kept, as well as the traditional cup of Elijah are presented, and insights to their christological significance are provided. Jews for Jesus has presented its Passover demonstration in more than five thousand churches. It was originally written in 1956 by Moishe Rosen, the founder and former executive director of Jews for Jesus. The program is open to the general public, and Tracy Rapp will be available to answer questions. For more information, call 986-2083 or visit
