Ta Shema: April 25, 2024

"From the narrow place I called out to God who answered me in the great expanse."

We find ourselves in the middle of Passover, halfway to freedom from slavery, halfway to redemption from the narrow place to the great expanse.

All of us are in need of Passover, to help us reach our greatest openness when we are closed off. We continue to pray for our truest freedom to be realized—freedom from Anti Semitism, as well as freedom from oppression just for being Jewish that is experienced worldwide. We pray for peace in our Holy Land, and that all those who pursue peace will experience lasting peace speedily.

"Min Hameitzer karati Yah, va'anani ba'merchavya--From the narrow place I called out to God who answered me in the great expanse. Please God, before the last days of Passover, when we remember the Jews who crossed through the sea on dry land to freedom, may there truly be peace on Earth".

"Min Hameitzar" by Deborah Sacks Mintz with the Hadar Ensemble
