Tomorrow night at sundown, millions of Jews around the world will celebrate Pesach, the Festival of Unleavened Bread that is usually called Passover in English. In Israel and among Reform Jews, the holiday will last seven days but eight among Conservative and Orthodox Jews outside of Israel.

So, I thought that I would wish those celebrating the holiday with me a Happy Passover.

The holiday commemorates the Exodus of the Jews from Egypt. Each generation is asked to recall what it was like to be slaves and to know freedom. Sadly, there are still people enslaved in our world -- literally and figuratively. May the day come when all know freedom and dignity.

Here is a site with links to information on Passover, including some recipes.

They are someone else's recipes, so can we use them?

Don't see why not, unless they're owned by someone who might object to posting them here, of course. If they're from a cookbook, though, just link the source.

I don't do typical Easter cooking, like I used to do when my kids were still at home. Don't dye eggs nor make a coconut cake. However, the teacher in me still wants to insist on decorating the dining room table with a Spring centerpiece. This year, I dragged out an old music box that plays "Peter Cottontail" and added a vase of lovely daffodils from my garden. :bounce:
