Pesach is quite possibly the most important Festival in the Hebrew Calendar.  It is the Festival of Freedom and we remember it not just during Pesach, but also during every Shabbat and every other Festival throughout the entire year.  Egypt and Pharaoh are symbols of the Yeitzer Hara of the nefesh level of ourselves, in other words our ego.  Pesach reminds us of the powerful redemption from Egypt as we fulfill the mitzvah of the telling of the story of Pesach.  Also this energy, which is available every Pesach, can assist us in securing freedom from our own selfish whims and fancies in our journey of transformation.   Chameitz (leaven) is a symbol of ego.  During Pesach we eat Matzah which is known as "bread without ego."  Matzah is not disquised in any way, we taste it for what it is, simply bread and water.  It is the staple we eat during these days of Pesach as a reminder that freedom comes to those who let go of ego and allow the true self to take over.

The Israelites had descended to the 49th level of negativity and therefore were beyond help.  It took the "mighty hand" of Hashem to save them.  So we are taught that anyone can partake of the Seder on the first night, because freedom is granted to all no matter if they are transforming themselves or not.  However, on the 2nd night of Pesach that Freedom is taken away from us and we must begin to rebuild the vessel and work towards earning back that energy.  This is known as the Counting of The Omer and on the 49th day, our vessel will be complete in order to receive all the energy back during the Festival of Shavuot.  Every night that we don't already have a service (connection) scheduled, i.e. Kabbalat Shabbat, we will offer a live broadcast of the Counting of The Omer at 8:00 PM EDT.  You may join us if you prefer to Count the Omer in community.

We invite you to join us this Pesach as we CELEBRATE FREEDOM. Below you will see our Broadcast Schedule for the Festival of Pesach and you will also find all of the Torah readings for each day. There are also links to our Pesach Haggadah, which has the B'dikat Chametz (Search for Chametz) on page 3, and S'firat HaOmer (Counting of The Omer) which has a handy Omer Counter. May your Pesach be filled with many blessings and much love and Light!
