Tonight Jewish families all over the world will gather to celebrate
Passover, the story of Exodus and the freedom of the Jewish people from
bondage. This holiday reminds us of the sacrifices that are still being
made for freedom – the U.S. troops who are away from their families so
that we can be with ours, and the Israeli people, who struggle for peace
with their neighbors even as they face the threat of war.
“Next year in Jerusalem” will be the refrain echoed by Jewish families as they finish their Seders tonight. It is a stark reminder that whatever the threats the Jewish people have faced, whatever the struggles, their connection to Jerusalem is ancient and unshakable. On this Passover holiday, our family sends our best wishes to all who are celebrating. Chag kasher V'Sameach. Happy Passover. And next year in Jerusalem.
