Next Year In Jerusalem

If you know a Jewish person, then you know the connection to Israel runs deep, our ancestors said it, and we say it every year on Passover, it is our spiritual awakening, and the birth of the Jewish nation.  It is the only country in the world where a Jew can feel completely at home, everywhere else we are just temporary, yet important to spread light and the message of balance, kindness, and being of service.

Many Jewish people return to their roots during Passover, keeping traditions and laws, and saying together, “next year in Jerusalem!”

Israel has been our home and on the tip of our tongues since our ancestors and continues on with our children.  The Middle East was divided by England and France after World War I, but then all of the new countries laid claim to the land and formed alliances, the video below describes in detail that ultimately Jews, Muslims, and Christians were all already in the region.

Passover has four names:
1- The Holiday of #Passover: The word פָּסַח (Pasah) in Hebrew means to skip or to pass over, this is why the holiday is named Passover, because God passed over the homes of the Hebrews.2- The Holiday of #Matzot: During Passover, we are commanded to eat unleavened bread (matzot) but not bread. When the Israelites left Egypt, they were on the run and did not have time to wait for the dough to rise.

3- The Holiday of #Spring The month of Nisan is a month of renewal for nature and the flowering of trees, meaning it is spring (Aviv in Hebrew).

4- The Holiday of #Freedom: Passover is called this because the people of Israel left a state of slave labor to a state of freedom.

So special that it is also Shabbat,
Wishing all of my Jewish brothers and sisters a Happy Passover,
Chag Kasher V Sameach,
Next Year in Jerusalem!
Shabbat Shalom,
Coach Yulia
