Well, the first seder is finally here. Tonight, as we sit at the seder table with family and friends, it's time to reflect on the true meaning of Passover, and not on the trials and tribulations that went into all the details of preparation.
But there's no denying that the planning and execution of all the details that went into making this seder possible -- the cleaning, the shopping, the cooking -- in all likelihood tested our patience and the patience of our families.
Josh Shron, a cantor in Little Neck, New York, put the whole process in perspective with a humorous song parody that he wrote last year called Matza Balls. Here it is for your enjoyment.
We'll be taking time off to observe the first two days of Pesach, so there won't be a blog post on Sunday. But we'll be back on Monday with our usual mix of humor, music, and stuff that you just can't make up. Chag Sameach to all!
