Welcome to our special FIRST OF PASSOVER-SEDER NIGHT issue.
The Passover Festival begins on Wednesday evening, April 5, with "the Seder," and four of our articles delve deeply into this beloved Jewish occasion, two from the Zohar (#4,5) and two containing teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe (#2,3), in honor of the 121th anniversary of his birthday on Nissan 11 (2023: April 2). The first and last articles are also related.
We held over the Annual blessing on Fruit Trees from last week on the home page — a nice family activity during the weekdays of the festival, if you haven't recited it yet.
From the 2nd night of Pesach (Thursday night) through the night before Shavuot we "Count the Omer" - see next week's special issue.
