It is tonight that children ask why this night different from all other nights. Tonight, during the Passover Seder, Jewish families gather together with friends and family to remember the Israelite’s deliverance from slavery. The past few days in Israel have been marked by high stress as people shopped at the crowded shuks (outdoor market place) and of course at home, where Jewish families clean every nook of their homes to dispose of all leaven and stock up on a week’s worth of Matza crackers. The feast of Passover lasts seven days.
While the time leading up to Passover may be highly stressful, tonight peace will descend as Jews from all over the worlds, from secular to Orthodox to Messianic sit down to celebrate their freedom. They begin with the Seder (the order) of the story from the Haggadah, which tells the story of the Israelites from Exodus to Egypt.
Passover is the most widely celebrated Jewish holiday and has double significance for Messianic Jews. The blood of the sacrificial lamb saved the Jews lost in slavery from the final plague of death. Yeshua also was the sacrificial Lamb, the substitute for the world. Everyone from israel today wishes all our readers Pessah Sameah (Happy Passover)!
Due to the Passover Holiday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday we will not be sending out our daily newsletter. We hope you all enjoy the holiday season.
