Chag Pesach Sameach (Happy Passover Festival) & Blessings on This Good Friday.

March 30, 2018


Today is a extraordinarily Sacred Day; for it marks the beginning of Passover for the Jewish people and Good Friday (also known as Sorrowful Friday and The Great and Holy Friday) for Christians.

 

 

Today is a day of fasting, prayer and mourning for many Christians; and tonight will be a night of reflection and feasting with the Seder meal by the Jews. (Tradition says that Jesus' Last Supper was a Seder meal.)

 

This Seder evening ushers in the seven-to-eight days of Passover; this Good Friday ushers in Easter.

 

Both holidays share the symbolism of the Passover Lamb, unleavened bread, bitter herbs, and the shedding of blood.  Both celebrate G-d's Deliverance for His people. 

 

And on this day - March 30, 2018 - they are the same day.

 

It is a Blessed Day indeed.

 

 

 

Wishing Everyone A Blessed Passover

&

A Blessed Easter Season!

 

May it extend to you & yours throughout the whole year.
