To Everyone – a Happy and Kosher Passover!

Passover takes a lot of preparation, both spiritual and physical. Because of all the physical work we have to do to get ready to celebrate, it is easy to lose sight of the spiritual side of the holiday. To help everyone keep the spiritual in mind and make their physical preparations, I’ve prepared this condensed guide to Passover. The first part offers some themes and ideas to keep in mind as you prepare, so that the meaning of your work is always before you. The second part, Pesah Notes, summarizes the detailed meanings and procedures behind each part of a kosher Passover. A separate article, Countdown to Passover, will help guide you through your Passover preparations, and the Concise Passover Rabbi Moshe Adler Schedule summarizes key dates and times.
