Personalize Your Passover & Prepare For Joy

There is an amazing concept in Judaism, one which radically contradicts the beliefs of much of the world. That is, when a person performs a mitzva simply because it is commanded by God, the merit is greater than for one who performs a mitzva out of other motives, instead—even out of the kindness of one's heart. Ideally, we [...]

After all, on Pesach we celebrate our freedom from servitude – something only achieved by acting brave and courageous. Our ancestors [...]

The Taste of True Pesach

The grinding poverty suffered by ordinary people in Ukraine over a hundred years ago is hard for us to imagine. Pesach was especially difficult for the poor.

Getting Down From Scrubbing? – Nissan #1

Now that Nissan has arrived, it's time to talk about Pesach cleaning.

Pesach: A Groan In The Void

God knew that certain of the Jewish children were not worthy of being redeemed. They were just not ready. So when the enslaved Jews failed to produce their quota of bricks, these children were thrown into the walls (Sanhedrin 101b, 103b; Aderet Eliyahu, Nitzavim 29:17). As they lay dying, near-corpses, crushed under the weight of [...]
