Hag Pesach/Heruth/Aviv Sameah!

( picture by Israel Talby, found here )

Since one of the names for Passover is the Festival of Freedom - because we celebrate the liberation from Egyptian slavery - and most Jews all over the world celebrate this holiday with their families and loved ones, at tonight's Seder all of us should remember Gilad Shalit, Ehud Goldwasser, and Eldad Regev, three Israeli soldiers who were kidnapped by Hamas and Hizbollah, and whose families and loved ones have been waiting for almost two years for their safe return home. This is the second Seder which their families will celebrate without them.
