Passover is traditionally spent with family and friends, a celebration of the Divine gift of Jewish survival and community. But with coronavirus curtailing travel plans and social interactions, we realize that we must all face the prospect of celebrating Passover alone.
Nonetheless, we should not be upset. Rather, let’s use these nights to be grateful for the many gifts we have. We are freer than we have been since our nation was exiled from Jerusalem two millennia ago. The Divine gift of technology is helping us combat this plague in ways we could have never imagined, and we are able to interact and be productive despite the restrictions and precautions we are taking.
Join Jews around the world in thanking G‑d for the miracles of the past and praying for greater miracles yet to come.
Next year in Jerusalem!
