A Word from Rabbi Schulman - 3/24/17
You may not believe it but Passover is less than three weeks away. Pesach begins on Monday night, April 10. In case you are looking for new sources of inspiration for your Seder, let me recommend to you some online resources.
Passover reminds us that we were once strangers in the land of Egypt. There is a powerful connection between our people’s experience as strangers in the land of Egypt and the plight of refugees today both in the U.S. and around the world. Supplemental readings on this theme is found here.
The American Jewish World Service has a downloadable Haggadah. Though this Haggadah is relatively brief it makes clear the linkage between the Jewish Festival of Freedom and our mandate to work toward the freedom of all people.
For a guide to Jewish customs and practices for Pesach, the URJ’s website contains useful information. I especially like the article about the 5 habits of successful Seder leaders.
Families with young children can benefit from a webpage produced by Jewish Learning Works.
Lastly, do not forget that on the 2nd night of Pesach we hold a wonderful congregational Seder at Temple. You can click here to make a reservation online.
It is never too early to prepare for Passover. May your Pesach be filled with joy and inspiration.
