    I take this occasion to write to you in honor of the birthday on 11 Nissan of the spiritual leader of the generation, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, who made our generation aware of the possibility and ability, and the great obligation, to spread to the Children of Noah the teachings of G-d’s Torah that was given through Moses: they should all accept upon themselves the Universal Commandments that were commanded to Adam and Noah and all humanity after them, and accept the yoke of the Kingship of Heaven completely. As his students, we call upon all people to believe in...

    YouTube can certainly be an embarrassment of riches. Just last night I found these two re-enactments of the Seder shel Pesach: one Sefaradi, and one Temani (Yemenite). For the Sefaradi seder, click here. For the Temani seder, click here. Please note that these are re-enactments, as direct operation of electrical equipment is forbidden on yom tov. I'm sure there's much more available for viewing, but this should hold all interested FReepers for now. Wishing all a Pesach kasher vesameach!

    The entire King David Hotel, where President Barack Obama be staying with an entourage that will fill all 233 rooms from Wednesday, March 20, to Friday, March 22, will be made kosher for Pesach ahead of his visit. The King David will roll out the carpet, but hold the rolls. With the hotel in a security lockdown, all the food necessary for the trip and the prosperous Pesach crowd to follow is being stored in containers out back. When PresidentObama said yes to a long-overdue visit next week, his first since becoming president in 2008, it’s not clear that he...

    Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them: 'Draw out, and take lambs according to your families, and kill the Passover lamb. And you shall observe this matter for an ordinance for you and your sons for ever. (Exodus 12) Soon, with G-d's help, we will establish Jewish leadership for Israel. Please be forewarned that when that happens, our familiar, comfortable Pesach holiday will be radically changed. We will have to forget about the Pesach seder with the extended family at the home of the family balabusta. Instead, we will be face to face with...

In his annual message, prior to his third straight participation in the Passover Seder, President Obama stated, “The story of Passover…instructs each generation to remember its past, while appreciating the beauty of freedom and the responsibility it entails. This year that ancient instruction is reflected in the daily headlines as we see modern stories of social transformation and liberation unfolding in the Middle East and North Africa.”

    Barack Obama devoted his Saturday weekly address to Passover and Easter greetings to Jews and Christians. That was nice. But listen to what he said. "These are two very different holidays with their own very different traditions," he explained. "But it seems fitting that we mark them both during the same week. For, in a larger sense, they are both moments of reflection and renewal. They are both occasions to think more deeply about the obligations we have to ourselves and the obligations we have to one another, no matter who we are, where we come from, or what faith...

    President Obama called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday to wish him a good start to Passover, White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters. Telling Bibi that he would host a seder at the White House, Obama “expressed hope that the Israeli people would be able to celebrate in peace,” Carney said. Obama also congratulated Netanyahu on an “impressive” technological achievement —the Iron Dome defense system, for which Obama recently approved $205 million in funding, Carney said.

    President Barack Obama Tuesday morning continues a Holy Week tradition that has helped him develop relationships with some of America’s most high-profile Christian leaders — an Easter Prayer Breakfast at the White House. More than 100 Christian leaders of different denominations and political persuasions are expected, according to a White House official. But the gathering, the first of which took place last Easter, also allows a president whose faith is at times questioned the opportunity to worship with an array of bold-faced names in the Christian community.

This year, there are a few additional notable events that are driving the news cycles over here. Apart from the upcoming Mid-East visit of the pope and the ongoing saga of whether Gilad Shalit will be home for Pesach, there's the controversy over the Chametz Law. Never heard of it? Well, since 1986, Israel has had a law on the books that forbids leavened products from...

    The ceremony has become a tradition ever since the liberation of the Temple Mount during the Six-Day War in 1967 and is seen as an observance of the Jewish obligation to make a pilgrimage to Jerusalem and the Holy Temple three times a year, on Pesach (Passover), Shavuot (Pentecost) and Sukkot (Tabernacles). During the weeklong Pesach and Sukkot holidays, the ceremony is held on the second of the Hol haMoed (intermediate) days. Hundreds of kohanim, Jews who trace their lineage to Aaron, the first High Priest, stood closest to the Western Wall to take part in the special blessings....

    Thought about sacrificing a paschal lamb this year?

So do many of the hundreds who will gather on Sunday to demonstrate against the police decision to close the Temple Mount to Jews. "Today all we want is the right to pray on the Temple Mount," said Rabbi Yishai Ba'avad, secretary of The Institute for the Establishment...

    On Saturday night I was sent off on the Pessah equivalent of a combat mission - shopping. Everyone had the same idea: I'll beat the crowds by shopping a few days before the Seder. The supermarket was bursting with such brilliant crowd-beating people. As an immigrant to Israel who keeps kosher, most of the year I relish being liberated from the Diaspora practice of scavenger-hunting for kosher products. Living in the Jewish state means having the freedom to pick anything off the shelf without using a magnifying glass. Every spring, however, I would regress to shopping like Sherlock Holmes, looking...

    Many Israelis disposed of hametz (leavened) products as Pessah approached, while MKs criticized the interior minister's failure to enforce the law prohibiting the display of hametz during the holiday, which begins today. Interior Minister Avraham Poraz came under criticism in the cabinet Sunday for announcing he does not intend to appoint inspectors to enforce the no-Hametz law during Pessah. Advertisement Saying that ministers cannot use their own judgment when deciding whether to enforce the country's laws, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said that matza on Pessah is a symbol that gives Israel it's Jewish character.

    In recent years, Passover has undergone a make-over in the American Jewish non-Orthodox community, one that has converted it largely into a holiday devoted to celebrating human rights, protesting a long list of human rights abuses and promoting fashionable causes. The remake seems designed to make Passover a cosmopolitan holiday, one with a universal message in which all can join, in essence the Jewish answer to the Declaration of the Rights of Man of the French Revolution. Back in the 1960s, a series of Political Correctness Haggadahs were written, in which the message of Passover was turned into a celebration...

    IDF Paratroopers in Tulkarm foiled an Islamic Jihad plot to carry out a suicide bombing in one of Israel's large cities over the Pesah holiday. Four Palestinians, including a woman, were arrested by the Paratroopers in Tulkarm on Thursday. The woman was suspected of planning to smuggle a ready-to-use explosives belt into Israeli territory. Neither the explosives belt, nor the potential suicide bomber meant to carry out the attack, have been found. The other three men arrested belonged to the Islamic Jihad and were planning the suicide attack. The suicide bomber who attacked Netanya's Park Hotel last year, killing 29...

    The Haggada reading that "in every generation there are those who rise against us to destroy us" will undoubtedly sound a responsive chord amongst Israelis especially at those Seders marred by the absence of a family member killed or maimed by terror or war. We have undergone almost three painful, bloody years during which the prevailing euphoria relating to the "irreversible peace process" has been shattered and exposed as a cruel illusion. Indeed under threat from chemical/biological attack, our children were obliged to take gas masks to school, a chilling reminder of the terrible horrors Jews underwent during the Holocaust....

    After three weeks of intense fighting, the American military offensive against Saddam Hussein's regime in Iraq more or less ended last Saturday. The military operation can be compared to smashing down pieces on a chess board by a violent hand and rearranging them according to a new guiding logic. The manner in which the pieces of the Iraqi regime were smashed down and are now being rearranged will serve as a basis for the work of politicians and an inspiration for military planners for years to come. I was privileged to bear witness to large swathes of the chess pieces...
