Dear Kol Rinah Family,
“Now we are slaves. Next year, we will be free.” As we approach Passover, the Feast of Freedom, we collectively are feeling less free than we have in many previous years. We are at home, in physical proximity only to the people with whom we live.
Just as God warned us to stay in our homes amidst the darkness of our last night in Egypt before the journey to freedom, so too do we sadly implore you to have in-person seders only with those with whom you live. We will be sharing resources for small seders, and instructions for having seders by yourself, and thoughts about the spiritual opportunities these seders offer, along with recognition of the real loss of not having seders in the physical presence of family and friends.
And of course, we know that many people will be having seders together virtually. If you would like to be matched up with people doing a virtual seder, please call or email the office. If you are in need of Passover food, or have any Passover-related questions, please be in touch with us.
Next year, we will be free.
L'shalom,
Rabbi Noah Arnow Rabbi Scott Shafrin
