The owners, editors, writers, cartoonist, bloggers, staff, advertisers and everyone involved in bringing the JewishPress.com to you every day want to take this opportunity to wish all of you, our readers, a Chag Kasher v'Sameach, a happy and kosher Passover.
Israel has some serious challenges up ahead, and if there's one lesson we take away from the Pesach holiday, it is that ultimately our fate is decided by God, and not an antagonistic president or an apocalyptic supreme leader.
As the Psalmist said (Tehillim 20), "Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God."
We're a nation of miracles. The history of the independent Jewish State is full of miracles.
As we learned from the Splitting of the Sea and the creation of the State of Israel, we have to be prepared to jump into the water and walk in over our heads, showing both our faith and determination, and then the miracles happen for us.
We also remember that on this holiday of freedom, not everyone is free, and like every year, we pray for the release of our brother, Jonathan Pollard.
May we have a wonderful Pesach holiday, and even if you are celebrating in Jerusalem this year, next year in Jerusalem too.
