Passover eatures six symbolic foods, including matzo, a cracker-like unleavened bread symbolizing the Exodus from ancient Egypt when there was not enough time to let the bread to rise. Patch file photo.

"A number of contemporary scholars believe the story of the Exodus is apocryphal and that theRead More Israelites were never among the peoples subjugated by the ancient Egyptians. Regardless of any historical debate, most rabbis believe...." So even if it is pretty much agreed all or most of these events are myths, followers are encouraged to perpetuate superstitious practices - just like Catholics not eating meat on lent Fridays.

Correction: You state: "Unlike most Jewish holy days, there is no synagogue service forRead More Passover, although some congregations and other organizations conduct Seders." In fact, there is a holiday service for the first two days and the last two days of Passover, as there is for the other pilgrimage festivals of Sukkot, and Shavuot. On the last day of the holiday, next Tuesday, the Yizkor service, a memorial service for the dead is added to the service.

To Martha Lieberman, some advice to find happiness in your life: Cook up a nice meal, invite aRead More homeless person from your neighborhood to share and read a story from the Haggadah. That homeless person would feel like a Mensch again, and, imagine, you, yourself, delivered him/her from bondage. G-d would smile at you throughout the whole Seder meal. Shalom!

Repentance? Oh, please. None of them are repenting while they are parking in my driveway. NoneRead More of them are repenting while they blast their noise (amplified sound system) into my home 6 to 8 times a day every day starting at 7:55AM. There is no repentance for those at Divine Saviour Catholic church, 90065. There is no respect for neighbors. There is no we care about your concerns. There is none of that. There is no repentance. Go, keep pretending there is. Those that have to live along these nuisiances know the truth. Keep pretending.

I assume "abstinence from eat" and fasting are one and the same...

I wish all these Christians would fast for 140 days and show us how pious they really are.
