The continuity that unites us at the Passover seder
Passover tradition is not just about religion; it’s the American-style mashed potato and gravy with main course, and the Israeli-style debate on politics as we read the Haggadah.
The smell is unmistakable: the scent of homemade chicken soup wafts through the air and I immediately imagine a huge bowl brimming with delicate matza balls. It’s the smell of Passover, one that evokes feelings of warmth and tradition. I’ve heard Passover be described in many ways throughout the years; from a holy, spiritual holiday to a Jewish version of Thanksgiving or Christmas.
