    Rav Avi,
    You are always good for hitting the nail on the head. I have up to now not learned the Kli Yakar. I see that he is indeed a Kli Yakar (dear or expensive vessel) and will start checking him out. Yishar koach, thank you very much. Hope we meet in EY some day soon.

    I shudder to think of the difference between this generation and even the one before it. How much more so 400 years ago!

    Moshiach we need you more than ever! This golus is unbearable and our brothers don’t even know it!

  4. One Christian's perspective says:

    Rabbi Shafran, thank you for sharing such a beautiful article. It reminded me of my Passover Seder experience this year – we did it early. As a Christian, many of us participate in this meal every year for many reasons and find the experience a beautiful expression of man’s need and G-d’s promises to redeem and to save. This year was a different experience for me. As we read the story, ate the foods and remembered, I was taken back to my exile – living as a child in a home of emotional child abuse – and forward to my redemption – forgiveness to those who hurt me. As He led Israel out of Egypt, He is there to lead us out of our emotional and spiritual exiles as we look back and forgive and look forward and trust His promises. This year, the journey was an awesome rembrance of an awesome and powerful G-d and his love and faithfulness. May the Seder experience this year be glorious to you and your people as you remember your past and bring it into the present knowing you never walk alone but in the presence of the Holy One of Israel who leads you out.
