Poem of the Week

Excrept from the First Olympic Ode

Creatures for a day! What is a man?

What is he not? A dream of a shadow.

Is our mortal being. But when there comes to men

A gleam of splendor given of heaven,

Then rests on them a light of glory And blessed are their days.

By Pindar

Dennis’ Seder

Last night I caught the last hour of Dennis Prager’s online Seder dinner. I’m going to watch the beginning this evening. This was my first Seder and it was fascinating because Dennis Prager and his friend Dr. Stephen Marmer, with whom Dennis has celebrated Passover for 30 years. They explain the symbolism and meaning of every facet shown. They translate from Hebrew and explain scripture as needed.

Also, they both share stories of their families’ Seders from years and years ago.
