Excerpt: Judaism’s master story is the Exodus from Egypt, followed by the trek to Mount Sinai and then to the Promised Land of Israel. We leave Egypt not as individuals but as a nation, and we do so only with the help of God…At Mount Sinai we engage in a Covenant with God that establishes the basis of our relationship with God – and the duties of that relationship – for ourselves and all our descendants. This perception of ourselves, our links to one another and to God, and our mission in life infuses much of our liturgy and many of our holidays, but it is Passover that focuses on this story most graphically. As the Haggadah says, “In every generation we each must see ourselves as if we personally left Egypt.”

Don’t Forget…A Special Pesach Gift from the Ivker Family
You may not know that Barry Ivker, who excels in his Torah reading skills and gives us the gift of his talent on many Shabbatot, is also a wonderful artist in his own right. Barry has published a beautiful 278-page Passover Haggadah, complete with his own artwork and beautifully written texts, as demonstrated in these pictures. The Ivker family is always sharing their time and commitment with this congregation, and now Barry and the Ivker family would like, as a token of love and appreciation, to gift one copy of this beautiful Haggadah to each Temple Beth El family. If your family is a member of TBE, please come by the office and pick up your copy of this gorgeous book, just in time for Passover. (If you are not a paid TBE member, you may purchase a copy for a minimum donation of $36.00 to Temple Beth El.)
Our heartfelt thanks to this wonderful family for this most generous gift!
