We Will Become Stronger :: Passover 2020 Begins in Jerusalem
Despite all of the difficulties leading into this year’s Pesach (Passover) holiday, we continue to see unity and strength within Israel. The holiday is one when the entire Jewish People are supposed to meet in Jerusalem and celebrate Hashem’s miracles from thousands of years ago. They are miracles that led to the return of the Jewish People to our ancient homeland in Israel with Jerusalem as our capital. During these times of the coronavirus pandemic, families are limited to conducting the Seder meal without the company of extended family and friends. However, this hasn’t stopped the people from making every effort to ensure our fellow citizens are as safe and well as possible. We have witnessed people going out of their way to check on neighbors and friends even from a distance. Our hearts and prayers go out to those who are alone and those who are sick at this time. We pray that we will all be able to overcome this pandemic together and bring everyone back to Jerusalem in the future in health, happiness and unity. Chag Sameach, Happy Passover to all!
