Photo Friday: What Does This Ceremony Mean to You?

“‘When you enter the land that the LORD will give you as he promised, observe this ceremony. And when your children ask you, “What does this ceremony mean to you?” then tell them, “It is the Passover sacrifice to the LORD, who passed over the houses of the Israelites in Egypt and spared our homes when he struck down the Egyptians.”‘ Then the people bowed down and worshiped.” (Exodus 12:25-27)

In this photograph from 1948, members of the nascent Israel Defense Forces (IDF) celebrate Passover, a celebration they will pass on to future generations, many of whom will begin the Passover observation tonight at sundown. Shabbat shalom, friends.
