Passover has always been defined by gathering together around a communal table, something that most of us cannot do this year as we continue to protect the vulnerable among us through social and physical distancing. Some have noted how this Passover provides us with a new appreciation for the hardships endured by our ancestors, from generation to generation. Though we thankfully do not face challenges like war, famine, or political oppression as they did, we have come to know a sense of unnerving isolation and uncertainty to which they could surely relate.
As we gather for virtual seders or alone at our own tables, let us take comfort in the knowledge that this plague too shall pass us over, that soon we will set full tables once more. Though the order of things has been thrown off, let us remember that it will eventually be set right again. This year, we are apart; next year, we will be together.
From 3GDC to all of you, we send our wishes for a meaningful, peaceful, and healthy Pesach.
