Last year at this time we said, “Next year in Jerusalem!!” Well, here we are!
Through the week have discussed Pesach and preparation as well as have shopped for the food for tonight’s celebration, but the full reality of it hit when early this morning we started cleaning and trying to eat the couple loaves of bread we had left over from the week… This Passover is special because, not only are we in Jerusalem, but also because we will celebrate with non-Jewish Torah keepers from a number of different countries. Our table will have German, Dutch, Swiss, and American participants.
Dorothe of Germany made our charoset while Rosa and Victor, Russian immigrants to Germany, prepared the meat. Kim and Debbie of the US pitched in on vegetables with Andrea of the Netherlands and Marie of Germany working on a large salad. Fred and Pieter debated various hagadot before taking on I brought and modifying it. I am really looking forward to tonight and lots of fun discovery and interaction….
I’ll be sure to post pictures and share thoughts from the event. For now, here are some images from the preparation.
