Lee Diamond – Where will you be for Seder
It’s only Thursday
The Seder is next Monday
Today I was asked at Least 10 times
“Where will you be for the Seder?”
Not : “ are you attending a Seder?
Not: “do you observe Passover ?
Not: “do you eat matzah on Passover?
It really works here.
The biggest sale items are new
Pots and pans and dishes!
Every house is busy doing Pesach cleaning
The garbage trucks are over loaded
With old items or chametz items
Kids are off from school already
Special Pesach camps open for
The children of working parents
Family starts arriving from the north and south
And the center to the north and south
Hotels and guest houses are over-priced
Yet full to the brim
Every hotel has a Seder
Pesach is a gift giving holiday
And the shops are brimming with gifts
The supermarkets are Kosher li Pesach
The “chanetz’ is hidden in the covered shelves.
Pesach foods abound
Recipes appear from every
Cultural and ethnic group
In the press.
The air smells
And the weather bursts forth as spring
And the wild flowers color the ground
Pesach’s in the air
We succeeded in our exodus
As we created a Jewish
State of Israel!
Where will You Be for the Seder?
