This verse contains the central message of the Seder and a Hebrew word rich in meaning. והגדת לבנך – v’-hi-gad’-ta l’-bincha means “you shall teach your children” and is the root word for the more familiar Haggadah ( הגדה ) which primarily consists of telling the Passover story to the next generation. The same Hebrew root נ-ג-ד has another meaning which is to bind, join and connect. What is the connection between telling a story and joining together? By recounting the story of the Exodus, we are doing more than recalling events that occurred long ago. We are connecting one generation to the next. Through their tireless efforts providing nourishment and sustenance to all who are needy, Meir Panim is uniting families of all generations ensure the continuation of this Passover tradition.
If I forget thee, O Jerusalem”…The words of King David have become engraved in our hearts and on our lips. We can never forsake Jerusalem and should never let Jerusalem slip out of thought. Millions around the world continue to Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem on a daily basis. Purchasing items from Israel to enhance the beauty of your home is a great way to remember the Holy Land it keep it at the forefront of your consciousness. Order an item (or two) from Israel today, and bring a piece of the Holy Land into your home!
Thank you for letting me have this great opportunity to share with Israel. May God Bless Israel. What I think about Israel365 – I love the music I hear. I love to hear about the land that speaks of My God whom I knew from birth. I like to hear the power filled stories about the Prophets and the Way God reveals Himself to Man. Israel365 brings out all I never dreamed I would know one day in my life. I bless you for letting us hear and see so much that has been hidden from us. Thank you. I Love you all for this. It is Glorious. May God bless you for what we are able to see and hear. –Shriyanee Nugawela
