I hope you had a wonderful Shabbat. We may not be together in person, but I think that we all feel a connection to each other nevertheless. This connection is one that is so deep and extraordinary, it transcends simple human logic.
We are Mishpacha. Our relationship is borne of a deep spiritual shared Neshama, as well as the shared experiences of millennia.
You may have heard about the Israelis stranded in Peru when the Coronavirus became a pandemic. The Israeli government brought them home via airlift. Perhaps you've seen the group singing Kol haOlam Gesher Tzar Meod. The video below is testimony from one of the El Al captains who flew them home on a 43-hour trip.
Though we may feel isolated right now. We are not living in a vacuum. Though we may be alone for the Seder, we are never alone. We are part of one big Mishpacha and that thought is very powerful. I think it is this sense of family that can carry us and inspire us as we head towards Pesach.
May we merit sharing a korban Pesach this year!
P.S. Please daven for Rabbi Morgan Rav Raphael Nachman Ben Vissa Yehudis.
