Rabbi Jonathan Sacks points out that when you read the Passover story, you come across something so remarkable and counterintuitive, which has an important lesson for us today.
Under the shadow of the Coronavirus we celebrate Passover.
For the first time in Jewish history the majority of synagogues in the world have voluntarily closed their doors. For the first time in my lifetime I will be celebrating Passover without my extended family. It’s just me and my wife Karen at the Passover table.
Separated from our children and grandchildren is incredibly painful, but the forced separation makes me appreciate—more than ever—the love we all share.
We are prisoners in our homes, but we are still free.
On behalf of Karen and myself, we wish you a happy, healthy, and kosher Passover.
