Passover comes early this year. But anytime is a good time for Passover.
Passover to me is about hope. It's about celebrating freedom and new beginnings. I love how families come together to tell the ancient story of the liberation of the Jewish people from the tyrant Pharaohs. As usual in the Jewish history its a story where few fought against many. A story of faith winning over.
As fit for the holiday of Spring, in Passover Israel is ever so beautiful filled with flowers of all colors.
Thankfully, Israel today is standing strong. On the eve of this Passover, President Obama visited Israel and facilitated the renewal of Israel's relations with Turkey.Israel reached out to Turkey and both agreed to mend ties in light of the deteriorating situation in Syria.
As the battle between Assad and rebels in Syria rages on, it gets closer and closer to the border with Israel. This morning IDF soldiers in patrol came under cross fire from Syria. As as result the IDF shot a missile and destroyed the shooting post in Syria.
The situation is very fragile and highly explosive and the area in the Syrian side of Ramat Hagolan is becoming unmanageable and infiltrated with radical elements.
But Israel will prevail like the Jewish people have been doing for generations and more. Our strength lies with our people and here is a great example from Ben Gurion University - a unique way to say Happy Passover.. enjoy!
I invite you to connect with us on Facebook As well - thanks for supporting Israel.
