Sometimes we just need help from Above.
When a person is trapped in quicksand his every
instinct is to move. But every effort to get himself out only drags him down
deeper. He can be freed only when he cries out for help and is willing to take
the hand that will free him.
On Passover night we will sit at the seder table
with our children, just as we sat with our parents, and just as they sat with
theirs, a chain of collective consciousness and memory that stretches back
thousands of years. We will remember and retell that once, in Egypt, in slavery
and bondage, we cried out from the depths of our beings, and it was then, with
a strong hand and an outstretched arm that G‑d, and G‑d alone, took us
out. And this year, as every year, with great feasting and joy we will
celebrate the certainty that we will do our part and He will take us out again,
once and for all.
Wishing you a happy and healthy Passover,
On behalf of the Chabad.org
P.S. In these final days before
Passover, we’ve got you covered. You can sell
your chametz, sign up for
a seder, download a
Haggadah, buy shmurah matzah, and find so much more at our Passover megasite.
