Sisterhood Wishes You a Kosher and Joyous Passover!

Q: What do you call someone who derives pleasure from the bread of affliction?
A: A matzochist.

Q: Why do we say Yizkor on the last day of Passover? What’s the connection?
A: On Passover, we remember the Exodus. After Yizkor, in most shuls, there is also a mass Exodus!

Q: What’s your favorite Passover film?
A: Shawshankbone Redemption

Q: How is a good sermon like a piece of matza?
A: They both should take less than 18 minutes!

“Freedom begins with exodus but it reaches its fulfilment in the acceptance of a code of conduct, the Torah, freely offered by God, freely accepted by the people. The counting of the Omer is thus an act of retracing the steps from individual freedom to a free society.”

– Rabbi Jonathan Sacks
The Chief Rabbi’s Haggadah (Essays)
