Happy Passover one and all. Tonight is the first sedar and Jews all over the world will commemorate freedom and liberation in a dinner ceremony. It is a beautiful ritual and retelling of the Passover story. In pop culture it has been memorialized in the movie, The Ten Commandments.
Here is some wiki-information:
Passover (Hebrew, Yiddish: פֶּסַח Pesach, Tiberian: [pɛsaħ] ( listen), Modern Hebrew: /ˈpesaχ/ Pesah, Pesakh, Yiddish: Peysekh, Paysakh, Paysokh) is a Jewish holiday and festival. It commemorates the story of the Exodus, in which the ancient Israelites were freed from slavery in Egypt. Passover begins on the 15th day of the month of Nisan in the Jewish calendar, which is in spring in the Northern Hemisphere, and is celebrated for seven or eight days. It is one of the most widely observed Jewish holidays.
This is a very important Jewish holiday and just sharing this with you. I am too tired to go anywhere as I worked my guts out but I celebrate it in my own way.
Cheers to you and lashana tova.
