Tonight is Seder night! If we manage to survive the overeating planned for the next few days, our next post will be on Wednesday Night.
We would like to wish all our readers, along with all of Klal Yisrael, a Chag Kasher V’sameach – a Happy and Kosher Pesach. May we all merit to celebrate in rebuilt Jerusalem speedily in our days.

Chabad has put out a wonderful day by day customs and halacha guide for Pesach in English, for internal use by the chassidic community. It includes daily adjustments to the tefilot and so forth. Very detailed, very nice.

Chag Kasher Ve’sameach!!
The people never got used to Egypt. They never felt they belonged there. They never said, “They are the masters and we are the slaves and that’s the way it is.”
So when Moses came and told them that they were going to leave, they believed him.
Everyone has their Egypt. You’ve got to know who you are and what are your limitations. But heaven forbid to make peace with them. The soul within you knows no limits."
— From the wisdom of the Lubavitcher Rebbe
