Happy Passover 2012!

Happy Passover 2012!

We're celebrating Passover this year by having a small family seder tonight, followed by a larger group seder tomorrow night.

So the table is all prepared, the matzah, wine, grape juice (for the kids), bitter herbs, charoset and prayers and the festive meal await.

Importantly, a group of leading medical researchers have published data indicating that Seder participants should NOT partake of both chopped liver and charoses during the meal, it seems that this combination can lead to Charoses of the Liver.

There is also a new brand of matzah just released for this passover season. Made from whole wheat and fortified with Metamucil. The brand name, of course, is...'Let My People Go.'

Happy Passover!

Happy Passover!! I'm always cautious and pause, about whether "happy" is the right adjective for Passover. But yes, Happily! the angel went by without stopping.

Thanks, and Happy Passover is just right.

Passover is one of the many Jewish Holidays that center around historical deliverances from evil.

It goes:
1. They tried to kill us;
2. They failed due to God's providence;
3. Let's eat.

That new matzah could be construed as celebrating the number of times Moses had to tell Pharaoh to let the people leave. So the full name would be "Let my people go...

and go...
and go...


Hope the Seders were joyous!
