You're Invited to a Celebratory Meal  
Tuesday, April 22, 6:00 pm
at the Lori Schottenstein Chabad Center

Bal Shem Tov (also known as Moshiach's Meal) observing the conclusion of Passover  
The last day of Passover ("Acharon Shel Pesach") is particularly associated with Moshiach and the future redemption. The Haftarah (reading from the Prophets) for this day is from Isaiah 11, which describes the promised future era of universal peace and divine perfection. Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov instituted the custom of partaking of a "Moshiach's meal" on the afternoon of the last day of Passover.

How does the third Seder help us celebrate redemption?
Here's an article about "The First and Final Redemption".

3,324-year-old event...who cares?
by Rabbi Areyah Kaltmann  

(this article appeared in the Ohio Jewish Chronicle on March 22, 2012)

According to a recent poll, 82% of secular Israelis conduct a Seder and 78% of secular American Jews will sit down to a Passover meal. These findings are astonishing when you consider that the redemption of the Jews from Egyptian bondage actually happened 3,324 years ago.

In 1947, David Ben Gurion addressed the following words to the United Nations:

"Three hundred years ago a ship called the Mayflower set sail to the New World. This was a great event in the history of England. Yet, I wonder if there is one Englishman who knows at what time the ship set sail? Do the English know how many people embarked on this voyage? What quality of bread did they eat?"

"Yet, more than 3,000 years ago, before the Mayflower set sail, the Jews left Egypt. Every Jew in the world, even in America or Soviet Russia, knows exactly on what date they left. Everyone knows what kind of bread they ate. Even today, the Jews worldwide eat matzos on the 15th of Nisan..."

However, Ben Gurion didn't go on to explain why this phenomenon keeps on taking place year after year. Who do Jews for thousands of years keep on having an Independence Day kick-off celebration that takes weeks to prepare for and then actually last for 8 long days?

rosh-chodesh-headline.jpgWhat’s your reason to celebrate?
The Jewish holidays are the centerpieces of our year. Days when we remember events that forever changed the course of our history.

But they are much more than that. The festivals are pauses in time, primed for personal introspection and spiritual re-connection. Windows to the psyche, fortifying us with tools for facing everyday challenges. Kaleidoscopes of beauty and meaning, changing how we see ourselves, our relationships, and our world.

Join us for this eye-opening new learning series from the Rosh Chodesh Society, coming this November.
