04/07/18 - NNHS Newsletter - Last Day of Passover

“Passover has a message for the conscience and the heart of all mankind. For what does it
commemorate? It commemorates the deliverance of a people from degrading slavery, from most
foul and cruel tyranny. And so, it is Israel's - nay, God's protest against unrighteousness,
whether individual or national.”

- Morris Joseph

“Passover affirms the great truth that liberty is the inalienable right of every human being.”

- Morris Joseph

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   Today is the last day of Passover - hmm, just as the title suggests.....

From http://www.timeanddate.com/holidays/us/last-day-of-passover:

Many Jewish communities in the United States mark the last day of Passover as the end of a Jewish holiday that celebrates the deliverance of Jewish people from slavery in Egypt. Passover is also known as Pesah, Pesach, or the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

What do people do?

Passover lasts for up to eight days (or seven days among Reform Jewish groups). There are many Jewish people who adhere to most of the Sabbath observances during the last day of Passover. Some may take a holiday around this time of the year. It is also a time for Jewish people to recite special blessings or prayers, as well as visit a synagogue or listen to readings from the Torah and eat a ceremonial meal.

Many Jewish families in the United States eat a ceremonial meal known as the Seder, which involves telling the story of the exodus from Egypt as well as eating various symbolic foods, such as meat of the paschal lamb and bitter herbs (recalling the harsh life of slavery). 

Public life

None of the Passover days are federal holidays in the United States. However, many Jewish businesses and organizations are closed for some of the days or have restricted opening hours on others.

Background and symbols

Passover celebrates Jewish people’s deliverance from slavery in Egypt. It is one of the three pilgrim festivals.  Passover is related to the Christian observances of Good Friday and Easter Sunday and the Islamic Day of Ashura. Read about other Jewish observances, such as Tu B'Shevat (Arbor Day), Purim, Yom HaShoah, Lag B'Omer, Shavuot, Tisha B'Av and Rosh Hashana.

Jerusalem of Gold

 

The air of the mountains is as clear as wine

And the fragrance of the pine trees

Is lifted upon the evening breeze

With the ringing of the bells

 

And in the deep sleep of the tree and the stone

Held captive in a dream

The city which sits alone

And in her heart, a wall

 

Jerusalem of gold

And of copper and of light

For all of your songs

I am the harp

 

How the water cisterns have dried up

The city square is empty

Nobody goes up to the Temple Mount

In the Old City

 

And in the caves of the rocks

Winds howl

And no one goes down to the Dead Sea

Upon the Jericho Road

 

Jerusalem of gold...

 

Although I come to sing to you today

And to tie crowns upon you

I am less than the youngest of your sons

And the last of the sweet singers

 

For your name singes the lips

Like the kiss of the serpent

If I forget thee, oh Jerusalem

She is completely golden

 

Jerusalem of gold...

 

We have returned to the water cisterns

To the marketplace and the square

A shofar calls out on the Temple Mount

In the Old City

 

And in the caves in the rocks

A thousand suns shine forth

And again we will go down to the Dead Sea

Upon the Jericho Road

 

Jerusalem of gold...
