Rabbi Shlomo Carlebah always said - the Seder Night is the time to get above crass comments and just
FOCUS ON THE MOST MOMENTOUS EVENT IN WORLD HISTORY -
the Exodus from Egypt
the end to enduring tyranny
the beginning of a NATION that is CLOSE TO G-dliness
and he taught
Almighty wants "forever" from us and for us - not to be stuck in the old ways of the political correct but to
Speak words of holiness, and reach out to family - and you will feel the holiness forever
And about the portion of Tzav this shabbat ...
Really think now - to whom did Mosesspeak those forty years?
And Who does President Trump speak with
And Netanyahu ?
And what will YOU discus with family and friends this Shabbat -and at he Seder Table?
I was having breakfast in a restaurant a couple of years ago and the peaople at the table said
Over there is Netanyahu having breakfast with some guy!
One of my friends went over and said hello and Netanyahu smiled and said hello and went on
In our portion Almighty says to Moses to talk to Aron and his sons about How to Run the Temple
Board meetings are great but the Temple functions with tons of work not everyone sees
OK it also says that Moses and the Almighty spoke face to face- about a lot of TORAH stuff
But was it a relationship?
At he end of this portion it is clear how DEAR Moses was to the Almighty -
after being appointed High Priest for a Week as the
Tabernacle was getting under way
I AM SURE there were a lot of people telling Moses "You are setting it up the wrong way"
and the same about your Passover seder... and how to run the Temple
The important thing is to - have a fun and HOLY seder - worthy of
a conversation "and how was the seder"
and maybe having Elijah the Prophet drop in for a sip...
And let it be a Holy Tool for Getting us Each out of our own little Egypts
Love and Blesings and Prayers for a
safe happy kosher Pasover
