It is cold out, but the sky is blue and the sun is shining as I write this message and think about Passover being only 4 weeks away, Friday evening April 15th is the 1st Seder, it is also the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, and today is also the first day of Spring. Passover is also the “season of freedom”. We are always made to remember we were slaves in Egypt. We read the Haggadah to recount our history.
The holiday is considered agricultural as well as historical in origin, and wherever we are we share the Seder with our Jewish brethren all over the world. As we rid our homes of chometz, cook our meal, and prepare our kitchen for 8 days of Passover. I look forward to my favorite holiday, and it lasts longer than any other.
It appears that the pandemic is no longer as big a threat as it was. Hopefully if that is true I want all of our congregation to remember that TBE is here for Friday night services at 5:30 PM and Saturday morning services at 9:30 AM. We have a lovely sanctuary downstairs at our original building at 1607 Genesee Street. Rabbi Geier is looking forward to meeting his congregation and what better place than at services. Please join us Friday and Saturday in person or on Zoom.
A happy, healthy, blessed Passover to all our families and friends from Stan and me.
