I want to wish all our Jewish members, friends and families a very happy and healthy Passover starting with tonight’s Seder. As we celebrate the festival of the liberation of the Jewish people, alone or with our immediate family or together on a digital platform, it’s important to remind ourselves about the true meaning of freedom and liberty and our mutual responsibility to save our country.
As we celebrate the Festival of Freedom during this “11th plague,” Christians celebrate Holy Week this week, and Jewish people retell the story of the Exodus out of slavery in Egypt to receive the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai and ultimately reach the Holy Land to “Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof!” from Leviticus 25:10, which formed the basis of our Judeo-Christian culture.
I want to share with you a very uplifting message of hope from a dear friend:
Wishing you a Passover that brings strength and good health to endure the year ahead. Couldn’t be a more appropriate time for the angel of death to pass over all our homes especially while we are sheltering in place. It is at stressful times like these that our resolve is strengthened and we question whether these things happen for a reason. Hopefully it will be a wake up call to save our country. Seems like G-d is sending that message and the President is the Moses of the modern era. We mourn those people however who have been sacrificed and let us pray that we will all emerge as a stronger and healthier country.
