At the stroke of midnight …..G‑d visited the last of the ten plagues on the Egyptians, who were mercilessly enslaving the Israelites.
The Good Lord spared the Children of Israel, “passing over” their homes—hence the name: Passover. (Get it?)
Pharaoh virtually chased his former slaves out of the land.
The Israelites left in such a mad rush that the bread they baked did not have time to rise.
They began their trek to Mount Sinai and their birth as a People.
So what’s the matzah all about?
The characteristic of leavened dough is that it rises and swells, symbolizing pride and conceit.
Matzah, on the other hand, is thin and flat, signifying meekness and humility.
Freedom and humility sweet friends, are the essence of the holiday.
Humility does not mean thinking less of yourself than of other people, nor does it mean having a low opinion of your own gifts. It means freedom from thinking about yourself at all.
Stay humble sweet friends.
And just remember…..when IzlamoNazis wail about their so called “rights”…..
Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.
Soooooooo, Who’s comin to Seder dinner?
Swallow your pride occasionally, it’s non-fattening!
GOD BLESS YOU ALL THIS HOLIDAY SEASON, sweet friends.
May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May the Lord make his face to shine upon you,
and be gracious to you.
May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
and give you peace.
When was the last time I’ve heard from you? Well, I just want you to know that I miss you so much. How I’d wish that you would talk to me again. I love you.
