Passover

with 2 comments

Tonight marks the end of passover. This is a week long Jewish festival remembering Moses and the exodus of the Jews from Egypt. God created many miracles for the Jews to escape slavery & be brought to the promised land. In these 7 days no one is to eat leavened bread to remember the journey & how there wasn’t enough time to bake bread before leaving. I kept kosher successfully for the second time now. It was much easier to keep here in Israel versus in Italy with pizza + pasta. It wasn’t too hard either to keep from bread and it’s not good to eat so much anyways.
We had 2 big celebrations drinking wine & having Matzah to remember the occasion. Inviting lots of people to share in the time always helps.
There were many free events courtesy of the bank. I went to the Israel museum, the bible land museum, and the Jerusalem botanical gardens. I even managed to go back to Neot Kadumim, where I planted my tree. It was nice to come back and enjoy all the biblical land reserve this time.
I went to Zirkon Yakov and saw a carnival with many artisans. It was really enjoyable to see all the festivities and enjoy the street music. I even had cotton candy.
Glad we were able to see so much this passover. It’s a nice break and a good reminder to be thankful for all the blessings God gives us.
