The first Seder of Passover will be on April 8 (Nissan14) this year. This ancient Jewish Holiday celebrates the Exodus from Egypt with a retelling of that story, special prayers, study and the doing of good deeds that are actually commandments, as well as the eating of matzah (unleavened bread).
Hospitality is a time-honored tradition and we open the door, lift the uncovered plate of matzah from our Seder table and say:
“Behold the MATZAH, bread of poverty, which our ancestors ate in the land of Egypt. Let all who are hungry come and eat; all who are needy, come and celebrate the Passover with us.”
This year in honor of Passover I will be sending flat rate boxes to all the villages we are helping. I encourage all who visit here to participate with me in doing this deed.
And I will also have a flat rate box at my Seder and invite friends and family to come with goods to fill it!!!
If you are making a Seder or have been invited to one, perhaps you can do as I am doing and include our Alaskan neighbors in your celebration. Invite guests to bring items to fill a flat rate box at your Seder and have extra boxes on hand for people to take home.
Then too, please share this appeal from anonymousbloggers with your friends, your congregations, blogs you visit and your e-mail buddies.
