Week 142 below. Happy #Passover everybody!
143.02/ #MotzeiShabbatMovieNight for Chol Hamoed: my parents are here (yay) and they've never seen The Emporer's New Groove! I know, right?! So that's being rectified as we speak.…
143.03/ It really seems like M*sk is doing everything possible to destroy the Bird Site. If he were a rational actor, then he's laser focused on sabotage. But he's a pathetic, fragile narcissist & so these are his *best* ideas.

I hope your #Pesach preparations are proceeding apace! As we all prepare for Pesach, some of our #Christian students and staff may be preparing for their own week of holidays, which, however, does not coincide with Pesach.

The week commemorates the last week before the Christian prophet Yeshu's execution.

This “Christian Holy Week,” more commonly known as Shavua Ha’Kadosh Ha’Christian, is fixed to days of the week according to a special calculation, with the first and last days falling on "Sunday,” their word for Firstday.

92.02/ This has been one of the busiest #CholHaMoed periods I've had in years. Many things are opening up again while I recognize the window may be closing again so we're doing errands (like getting drivers licenses, passports etc). I'm actually looking forward to yuntif to rest!
92.03/ This is very nice! #Disability accommodations are always a good thing. #LGM

Vandaag begon 'chol hamo'ed #pesach' - de periode dat men traditiegetrouw naar Jeruzalem (en de tempel) trok.
Niet-Moslims kwamen - buiten gebedstijd - naar de Tempelberg, zoals elk jaar.
Palestijnen berichtten vervolgens dat 'de Joden de Tempel willen bouwen->>
->> In de #Tempelberg stonden vroeger de beide #Joodse Tempels, nu staan er de #Rotskoepel, de #AlAkzamoskee en meer #Moslim instituties.

Het Joodse heiligdom is de Klaagmuur - grenst aan het gebied.

Vanochtend verzamelden 'bidders' op de berg stenen en stokken ->>
->> Ook zijn vandaag Joden, op weg naar het gebed bij de Klaagmuur (onder de tempelberg) door Palestijnen aangevallen.
Eerder zijn Israelische bussen langs de oude stad met stenen bekogeld.

+ Palestijnse jongeren gooieden stenen, stokken en vuurwerk

Emily, elder to many, storyteller, truthteller, struggling for words w/ brain tumor, says:

"Dare to be golden. Dare to love without judgements, conditions or fear of being judged. Be gentle with each other and yourselves; and trust that you are where the heart is held. (more)🧵
"It can be a difficult and cold world
but these guiding principles have brought joy and warmth to me and those around me throughout my life.
This is the gift that we have been given. (more)🧵
"We must trust that the connection is whole and not broken and let the message come through us.

I hear a call, I trust the call of those who bring hard truths and welcome us to be who we can be in this moment.

My time is too short but I have trusted the intention. (more) 🧵

1/ #ReshetKeshet #Passover2022
I was asked a question about autistic food sensitivities and #Pesach and I've been able to present the issue to one of my poskim and I want to detail the answer, in basic terms, for public consumption (no pun intended)
2/ This is part of my larger project of translating disability issues into halakhic language. IMO there are so many people in needless pain. Yet knowledgeable Orthodox Jews will understand that Jewish law is broad, deep & rich to accommodate any issue.
3/ I am not a posek, I am operating as a "halakhist" - basically a legal scholar with an expertise in medical issues (among others) - and IMO while invisible disabilities lack overt signs, they can be "translated" by seeing the behavior surrounding them.

There is a profound difference between #history and #memory. History is HIS story - an event that happened sometime else to someone else. Memory is MY #story - something that happened to me and is part of who I am.
To be a #Jew is to know that over and above history is the task of memory. More than any other #faith, #Judaism made this a matter of religious obligation.
#Pesach is when we recount not our history but our collective memory as a people, where the past does not die but lives, in the chapter we write in our own lives and in the story we tell our children.

Chapter 1:
In #Persia, in days long ago
The king tossed 'em back like a pro.
But he wasn't amused
when Queen #Vashti refused,
so he opted to change status quo.

Chapter 2:
#Achashveirosh's anger was shed
and he thought, "It's about time I be wed."
Then just as was planned,
he took #Esther's hand --
though her or'gins she kept in her head.

Chapter 3 (part 1):
The royal advisers just stared
when #Mordechai wasn't prepared
to bow to a man
whose Amalekite clan
had too often in mem'ry been spared.

(#Pesach / #Passover thread...) When people talk about religion, they tend to speak about beliefs. Which, for Jews, is very odd.
Yes, belief is important, but for us, religion is fundamentally about rituals, the things we do together as an expression of collective memory and shared ideals.
Ritual is the poetry of deed, the choreography of faith, and nowhere is this clearer than on Pesach.

On it, we tell the story of the framing event of Jewish history, the exodus from Egypt and the long walk from slavery to freedom.
