A happy Pesach to all
We are getting ready to start our Passover seder. As we link with Jews around the world, two thousand years of Jewish tradition come to mind. Together we will drink four cups of wine, ask four questions, and describe four types of people. We will recount our people's ancient exodus from slavery in Egypt to freedom in our own land of Israel.
In Hebrew the word for Egypt is Mitzrayim, meaning the "narrow places." May each of us find the strength to navigate our personal narrow places, to take joy where we find it, and to breathe in the sweet air of spring and renewal.
Chag Pesach sameach vekasher.
