Redeeming the Wicked Child of Passover
Jewish Holidays
The festival of Passover was not far off. Households bustled happily from morning till evening with cleaning and shopping.

On the night of Passover, the Ari taught, you must enter your home for the Seder with great joy.

On this night, all the portals of heaven are opened. On this night, G‑d pours down His deepest love upon every Jew. On this night, we were liberated at midnight.

On this night, expect wonder.
