Recently, the rabbi of a synagogue reached out to its former rabbinic interns for brief teachings around Passover/Pesach/פסח and some heeded the call. As a former rabbinic intern of this synagogue, Beth David Synagogue of West Hartford, CT, having served as the rabbinic intern in 2007-2008, I was happy to help, especially since I particularly appreciated my experience with the rabbi, Rabbi Yitzchok Adler.
Since my colleagues knew that I had some facility with video-editing, I acceded to their request to put this video together. So, after collecting the submissions from my colleagues Rabbi Yonah Berman, Rabbi Daniel Braune-Friedman, Rabbi Saul Strosberg, Rabba Claudia Marbach, and Rabbi Stephen Belsky, I packaged it together today and am happy to share this presentation of our teachings:
Last week, I led a conversation for young adults to go over the Passover Seder(s) in order to mentally prepare for it. Taking place in Long Beach on the Sunday prior to the holiday, I led a relaxed conversation (over beer – something we would not be enjoying during the holiday), going over the elements of the Passover Seder(s) and to get people ready for what would be taking place.
