Passover Message from Rabbi Warner

For me, Pesach requires more physical labor than any other holiday. The act of cleaning out my car, my office, and the rest of the house in search of chametz means that I can’t only focus on the spirituality of holiday, but most also pay close attention to the physical reality. It isn’t enough just to THINK about getting rid of the Chametz (both physical and spiritual) in my life, I actually have to DO it. 

Pesach is a holiday of actions. May all of us be inspired to make our actions in preparation for Pesach actions which also improve the world. 

Chag Kasher v’Sameach!
