Firefighters hold Passover seder

Matt Gordon (foreground) and fellow Golder Ranch firefighters held a Passover seder at fire station 377 in Oro Valley on April 8. Family friend Hedy Feuer provided the matzah ball soup, kippot, and Haggadahs, and the firefighters prepared the rest of the meal. Gordon’s father is Jewish, Feuer explains, and he grew up celebrating all the Jewish holidays at his late grandparents’ home in Tucson or at her house. “Passover was his favorite, especially singing Had Gadya with his grandfather,” she says, adding that Gordon and her son, Jacob, went on a Birthright Israel trip together in 2009.
