Short thought

Friday evening – 4/22/2011:

    1. Before sunset, light the Shabbat candles, (click here for local times), and enjoy a relaxing Shabbat with Passover food (that means no Challah of course — use two matzahs instead).

Sunday evening – 4/24/2011:

    1. Tonight begin the final two festival days of Passover. Light candles at the specified time, and enjoy festive mealsSunday night, Monday afternoon and night, and Tuesday afternoon.There is a custom to stay awake Sunday night (the night of the Splitting of the Sea) and

      study Torah through the night.

Tuesday morning – 4/26/2011:

    1. Yizkor, the memorial prayer for departed parents, is recited following the reading of the Torah during the morning prayer service.

Tuesday afternoon:

    1. As the day wanes, spend the final hours of Passover with “Moshiach’s Meal” — a special feast in honor of the Redemption. We’ve spent eight days celebrating the exodus from Egypt. Now, as we leave Passover, we pray for the exodus from our present exile and a brighter tomorrow.

Tuesday night:

  1. At nightfall, the Passover holiday comes to an end. Make Havdalah over your last cup of kosher-for-Passover wine. Put away the Passover dishes, Haggadahs, and all other Passover items, locking them away until next year. Then, … you can once again enjoy chametz food and drinks, and feast on pizza, bread, beer — anything kosher. (Just make sure it’s not chametz that was in the possession of a Jew during Passover.) But as you do, don’t forget the eight days of freedom you’ve just experienced, and remember that throughout the year, as you enjoy all your leavened food, you still carry a bit of the Matzah spirit with you!


G-d first went to the Egyptians and asked them if they would like a commandment. “What’s a commandment?” they asked. “Well, it’s like, THOU SHALT NOT COMMIT ADULTERY,” replied G-d. The Egyptians thought about it and then said, “No way, that would ruin our weekends.”

So then G-d went to the Assyrians and asked them if they would like a commandment. They also asked, “What’s a commandment?” “Well,” said G-d, “It’s like, THOU SHALT NOT STEAL.” The Assyrians immediately replied, “No way. That would ruin our economy.”

So finally G-d went to the Jews and asked them if they wanted a commandment.  They asked, “How much?”  G-d said, “They’re free.”

The Jews said, “Great! We’ll take TEN!”
