PESACH ~ Reconnecting to the Divine Source ~
, known as Passover in English, is a major Jewish spring festival, commemorating and retelling the story from Exodus’ freedom from Egypt over 3,000 years ago.
The ritual observance of this holiday centers around a special home service called the seder (meaning order) and a festive meal; the prohibition of (leaven); and the eating of (an unleavened bread). Adding to the sedar are 4 cups of wine, which are drank throughout the meal, each for a special purpose. All the ritually symbolic foods are displayed on one big sedar plate. Each has its time and blessing through the meal.
On the fifteenth day of Nisan in the Hebrew calendar, Jews gather with family and friends in the evening to read from a book called the , (meaning telling), which contains the order of prayers, rituals, readings, and songs for the Passover seder. Today, the holiday is a celebration of freedom and family.
Passover is celebrating the greatest series of miracles ever experienced in Jewish history! During which we are reminded to reach above nature into the miraculous. Through humility and ridding ourselves of inflated egos, we can tap into the divine energy source we all have within our souls!
