The Pesach window

The Passover stained glass window at the synagogue of Hechal Shlomo in Jerusalem.
I am going there soon for a communal seder. Must catch the 2:40 bus. After that public transportation stops until after Pesach. Bye!

Happy Pesach!

The Festival of Matsot
In your light we shall see light
The time of our freedom
To kindle the lights of Yom Tov

Beautiful stained glass window!

When I look, I see God's hands calling the world into creation and blessing it because it was good.

For Passover, I see God's hands stretched out to cause Pharaoh to release God's Nation!

Happy, Blessed, and Peaceful Passover to everyone!

Wow. This is truly a beautiful work of art.

It reminds me. When I was growing up and a little boy, I would wake up hearing the village blacksmith pounding out iron to make horseshoes while the big horses patiently waited.

Later, when I married, had children and they left home, my wife of 54 years and I went to the little church in my hometown for an ice cream social. There were so many people there that we had to wait. They had us and others waiting in the main part of the church.

There on the window was a large stained glass of the village blacksmith, Tommy Rice. It and the memories brought tears to my eyes.

I hope you don't mind, but I borrowed your image of the stain glass window. I will use it to wish my friends a Happy Passover on FB. You have a safe and wonderful Pesach.

Beautiful stained glass window, Dina. Luckily I can see this image, because from this evening the images are not displayed on my computer! I hope it's not a virus!
Happy new week :-)

A lovely window Dina. A special week for both of us. As we honor and celebrate our own beliefs, we also respect and honor each other's. Blessings for a wonderful Passover Dina.
