Chag Sameach Pesach

A joyous Passover (Pesach) to those who celebrate it. We have a full week to reflect on its significance.

For now, some posts from last year, when I was with out of town friends-as-family for the beginning of Passover and had a little more time. (Whew, I posted a lot about Passover last year. What has become of me this year?)


Exodus, Cargo of Hidden Stories.

This one is funny if you're Jewish... (The two-minute Haggadah)

The two-minute Haggadah was a joke, but this one's for real!

Also in today's WaPo: the ambassadors' Seder.

I promised you Miriam's Cup...

... and the orange on the Seder plate.

Pesach check-in with Velveteen Rabbi.

And always, an important reflection for Christians during Passover and the Easter season:
Jews and the death of Jesus.

You surely know this one, Jane, the brief run-through of every Jewish holiday:

1. They tried to kill us.
2. They failed.
3. Let's eat.

It doesn't work with Yom Kippur and Tisha B'Av because you eat after sundown.

I meant to say sundown after the "holiday" is over.
