APPROPO OF FRIDAY'S BLOG

We had four non Jewish people at our Seder for Passover. The energy was strong and positive. We spoke of Syria and other countries where freedom is just another word for abuse and destruction. So sad. We spoke of Israel's new missile defense system that is amazing. It gauges where the missile will land and if it is likely to hit a building or home it sends a missile to swallow it—pac man style!

And we laughed and enjoyed and shared and had all of the traditional trimmings replete with explanations for what they symbolized. A really good time was had by all. It shows that we are all of one God with slightly different points of emphasis. The parallels between Passover and Easter are undeniable as are those between Christmas and Hanukkah. Not to mention that The Last Supper was a Passover Seder.

May we someday all live in peace together as we did at our Seder table.

Bye for Now,
