Passover 2017

Starting this Monday evening Jewish communities worldwide will begin celebrating the festival of Passover, or Pesach, which commemorates the liberation of the Israelites from slavery in one of the important festivities in the Jewish calendar. According to the Book of Exodus in the Torah, Moses called for the Pharaoh to free the Israelites, warning that if he failed to do so, Egypt would be struck by terrible plagues – the last one of which would be the death of every Egyptian first-born male. The Pharaoh refused to do so, despite the...

The Worry Tree

A story about troubles… A carpenter I hired to help me restore an old farm house had just finished a rough day on the job. A flat tire made him lose an hour of work, his electric saw quit, and now his ancient truck refused to start. While I drove him home, he sat in stony silence. On arriving, he invited me in to meet his family. As we walked toward the front door, he paused briefly at a small tree, touching the tips of the branches with both hands. When opening the door, he underwent an amazing transformation. His tanned face was wreathed in...
