No More Chometz

by

"And this is what has stood by our fathers and us, for not only one has risen up against us to annihilate us, but in every generation they rise up against us to annihilate us, and the Holy one, blessed is He, saves us from their hand."

Good Yom Tov (happy passover) to all our readers.

May you all merit to be free from your personal Egypt/Boundaries.

May this be the year we get rid of all our Chometz once and for all!

One Response to “No More Chometz”

  1. NOT JUST ONE MOSSER Says:

    “For not only one has risen up against us to annihilate us, but in every generation they rise up against us to annihilate us.”

    QUESTION: What misconception does the Haggadah seek to dispel by stating “not only one.” it could have omitted this, simply stating “In every generation they rise up…and Hashem saves us”?

    ANSWER: There are many Jews who imagine that nations of the world are our friends. They think that the only problem in Persia, for instance, was that there lived a wicked man called Haman and that the only problem during the Holocaust was that there was a wicket man called Hitler YM”S.

    Therefore the Haggadah says, “Strike this erroneous thought from your mind. Be aware that it is not that only one [wicked person] who is permeated with hatred for the Jews rises against us, and then induces the innocent masses to follow him. Rather, in every generation “they” — the entire people — rise up against us to annihilate us. Anti-Semitism exists everywhere, but people generally lack courage to display it openly until a brazen individual stands at the forefront and brings this concealed hatred to the surface.

    The same argument can be made about the Mossrim of Crown Heights. It is not only Mendel Hendel or Chanina Sperlin or Paul [Levi] Huebner or Yaakov Spritzer or Elie Poltorak etc…etc… who are causing controversy and Mesira.

    We can’t argue that getting rid of any one of them would bring peace, “for it is not one”, it is all of them together that conspire to burn Crown Heights down. They –all these mossrim — must be brought down!
