This year we mark Passover still with difficult circumstances around the world because of the ‘Corona plague’ (the modern affliction that has affected all of our lives).
Despite ‘social distancing’, closures and isolation at homes, we will set the Passover table, we will be thankful that we arrived to this moment and we will celebrate the holiday with both those at our table and also those far away via zoom.
The Passover holiday is a time of joy and renewal, but also the holiday of freedom – Chag haHerut. Even when we are forced to stay in our homes, we still have the freedom to appreciate the most basic things in life: our families, our health, our history and tradition. ‘’ I wish you all a happy and healthy Passover ‘Chag Pesach kasher v’sameach.’
