A famous city deli played host Monday night to the city's largest Reform synagogue for Passover seder.

Temple Emanu-EL marked the first night of the Jewish holiday with a seder at Katz's Deli.

This is the second year that the temple is hosting the unique seder in the equally unique location.

"Well, Katz's seemed fun," said Rabbi Ben Zeidman of Temple Emanu-EL. "It's a little different than usual. You wouldn't normally associate a Passover seder with Katz's Deli, but it's, and in that sense, it's fun and unique and special."

"Yeah, I'm here to celebrate Passover," said Jeff Zeidman, who attended the seder. "It's the first night, and I wanted to be among large groups of people, and what better place to come to than Katz's Deli?"

The eight-day holiday commemorates the exodus of the Jewish people from Egypt.
