Pre-Pesach/Pesach information

Liberation does not come suddenly on the wings of a moment. Like running a road race or the pursuit of any great and noble deed, it requires a process of preparation.  The sweet taste of freedom is tinged with salt, as the dipping of karpas, the parsley sprigs dipped in salt water, reminds us.  It comes as the fruition of sacred striving, with torch passed through generations.  With eyes set on the prize and hand and heart and mind engaged, as the binding of tefilin daily reminds, the process of freedom builds upon daily details toward the Pesach to come, the ultimate redemption, a world at peace.

And so the process each spring that brings us finally to the Seder table is built upon details of preparation that have to do with our selves and others.  Pesach is a wonderful context in which to see the interplay of ritual and ethics in Jewish life, of the personal and interpersonal, each in relation to God.  Pesach preparation and observance require us to open our hearts and our doors, to look within and without, as we follow freedom’s road through a unique pattern of living that distinguishes us as Jews.
