...but doesn't it feel stressful when the ads on your blog are for PASTA!?
No, seriously, it does seem like the whole world is not with us during Pesach. Everywhere I go, everything I see, I am aware more than ever during the year that I am separate. We can't just stop for a snack...keeping Passover doesn't bother me. Eating chametz-free isn't the difficult part. It's figuring out how to keep it together in a world that isn't on break, doesn't remember or think about what we are thinking about.
This is when I miss living in Israel, when it really felt like the whole world was Jewish, the whole world revolved around me and my Pesadik needs...like my friend FrumeSarah, I too feel a bit of discontent at this time of the year.
I love Pesach. I love Jewish life.
I sometimes just wish it wasn't quite so hard.
And you know it must be when even the rabbi-mom says so.
What's your torah this week?
