In Every Generation

Tomorrow evening Jewish families throughout the world will sit down together as they have every year for millenia, with matzoh and bitter herbs on the table, and parents will relate to their children the story of how God brought us, the Children of Israel, out of Egyptian slavery and freed us to serve Him and Him alone.

"In every generation a person must look at himself as if he came out of Egypt."

"This is what has stood by our fathers and us! For not just one alone has risen against us to destroy us, but in every generation they rise against us to destroy us; and the Holy One, blessed be He, saves us from their hand!"

--The Passover Haggadah

To my Jewish brothers and sisters, Chag Pesach Kasher v'Sameach--may you have a happy and kosher Pesach. To all of our friends, Happy Passover.
