To all of our readers out there,
Come sundown Saturday evening, the holiday of Passover beings and the Jewish people will be celebrating their freedom from oppression, tyranny, and anti-Semitism. Below is a video that tells the story of the Exodus in about 6 minutes.
However, it is on this festival of freedom, where the Jewish people will sit at home and remember the story of their freedom, that we must remember those Israeli soldiers who are not free but remain in captivity.
At your seder table, please leave one chair empty for the Israeli soldiers who still remain captive. Also, click here for a copy of a prayer to say for the missing soldiers.
At this festival of freedom, I wish to say Happy Passover or Chag Kasher ve Samayach, and may we all be able to live in peace together in Jerusalem.
Leshana Haba BeYerushalayim!
