|"When Fish Fly"|
Today I am mostly busy doing some last minute prep-work - I was up late making my Passover journals for everyone - with my adorable little felt matzoh bookmarks!
|A Still Life I did a while ago - lots of veggie preppin' today!|
This year, I invite you to pretend like you yourself are breaking free from whatever binds you, fleeing you own spiritual Egypt and finding refuge in the beautiful new beginnings - the season of our freedom, it is also a festival that speaks of spiritual redemption. Jews were freed from mental as well as physical slavery.
“This month shall be the head month for you. It shall be the first month of the year.” (Exodus 12:2).
It's also, Nisan, the month of miracles. The Torah teaches us that there are two beginnings: Rosh Hashanah, the natural beginning of the world, for all creatures; and the miraculous month of Nisan, the beginning of the Jewish people.
What does true freedom mean to you?
My father and I also put together our own hagadah over the years based on the themes that are most meaningful to us. We took excerpts from about 30 different hadagahs we love, pus inspiration about Spring, our history, quotes about freedom, and more. It's very special to have after all these years.
