How will you make this year different from all others?
Over the past year, we have experienced unfortunate loss and hardship, but we also experienced our Jewish community come together in ways we never have before – to talk, console, share resources, experiences, and knowledge, and to find new ways to help the most vulnerable among us. And we did it mostly virtually.
Throughout lockdown, social distancing, and record unemployment, we delivered meals to vulnerable seniors, we stocked our Sara’s Table at the Kraus-Chaiken food pantry for the hungry and delivered kosher home delivered meals to those in need.
In past years, we gathered around the seder table with family and friends. This year, we gather around separate seder tables, sharing the holiday virtually. Last year at Passover, we faced a year of uncertainty and loss, this Passover we truly know the power and strength of our Jewish community.
My hope for all of us is that we take time to appreciate the “freedom” of Passover, and the roles that we play in serving our community with compassion and with strength.
Wishing you all a healthy, happy, and safe Passover holiday. (First night of Seder is Saturday, March 27)
