Kol Hakavod!

Thank you Lori for keeping it real.
I know that Pesach is not about Spring cleaning but somehow we all get lost in it. Thanks for the wake up call!

So true, thank you

Lori,
Thank you for a great presentation and an even greater message. We should all be learning and teaching the meaning of meaning of our faith and our customs. We all have different size pans share the same history and destiny.

Thank you,

don't sweat the small stuff

While it is easy to get caught up on small, particularly things, we often forget the larger picture of what G-d wants us to do. Certain details are flattering, but the question is: what is the overall purpose?

Passover should be about people and families getting together to embrace the freedom of our Jewish heritage.

It can be easy, however, to take things for granted if a certain catering hasn't arrived getting stressed out about it, and then racing to the catering shop to demand the ordered food. So, why not have a back-up system or enjoy cooking with others? My late bubbe was like this, full of worry and stress, so I hope now that she is RIP, she is in a much better, worry-free place before G-d.
