Happy Passover to one and all!

This Saturday night, Jews throughout the world start celebrating the festival of Passover (Pessach), which traditionally commemorates the exodus of the People of Israel from the slavery in Egypt. On Saturday evening, the traditional Seder is conducted, in which Jews have a festive (and long …) meal at which the “Hagadah” (the “telling”) is recited.

Throughout the week, it is traditional not to eat “Chametz” (bread-related food), and only eat “Matzah” (unleavened bread – too much of which causes stomach problems …).

As this holiday marks the freeing of the People of Israel from slavery, it is customary to wish all that this should be the beginning of each and every one our newly found freedom from which ever type of slavery constricts us!

Happy Pessach!
