The Jewish Passover is a time for Jews to celebrate their delivery from slavery in Egypt.
It is no coincidence that Easter and Passover are forever connected with the story of Jesus, Rome, iniquity, slaughter, religious persecution, and on and on.
During the traditional Seder dinner – which was Jesus’s last meal, his Last Supper – Jews eat bitter herbs during the celebration Seder to remind them of the horrible years of slavery.
Tradition has it that Jews are meant to recline in their chairs where they sit when the Seder is held, to recline and enjoy the dinner and the freedom.
We wish Everett’s Jewish residents a Happy Passover.
It is after all a spring holiday, a resurrection of sorts, and always intended to be a moment of reflection and great hope when despair is left far behind.
