Hebrew New Year & Passover
The new Biblical month of the new Biblical year began March 17 at sundown. That means that the 14th day of the 1st Hebrew month falls on the evening of March 30th. Thus Passover begins after sundown on March 30 this year. For this Passover season we are taking a break from our normal teaching schedule to offer special Passover-related programs. We hope you enjoy them!

Thoughts from Eliyahu ben David:
If you just finished reading the joke immediately above you are probably laughing right now. I know I was after I read it. I also realized there is a real point to the joke. That is - there is a huge gap between Hebraic thinking and our Greco-Roman common culture. That gap often leads to huge misunderstanding. I know that here at Tsiyon we are constantly trying to bridge that gap - to communicate Hebraic-based truth that doesn't easily fit into the Greco-Roman mind. That is our biggest challenge. Passover is such a good example of that gap. So many around us do not see the relevance of keeping Passover, while it is vital to us. In one sacred meal we celebrate our national deliverance from Egypt, our personal deliverance from sin, death and the world by our Passover Lamb - and even our future deliverance just ahead in the Second Exodus. Bunnies and painted eggs are both inappropriate and trivial compared to this! And yet, many sincere believers still just don't know the difference. I pray that we, who do know the difference, can find the love, grace and concern for those around us to do what we can to communicate the profound meaning of this Passover to others, as we are moved, strengthened and encouraged by it ourselves.
Dawn and I want to take this opportunity to wish you and yours all of the profound and abundant blessings of this Passover season.
Blessings and Shalom,
Eliyahu ben David
