DO NOT INVITE GOYEEM, NON JEWS JEWS TO YOUR SEDER

March 28th, 2010 · No Comments

IT IS A HOLY NIGHT FOR YOUR FAMILY, Your children, your cousins and parents and uncles and aunts. It is a night commanded at MT SINAI to tell the story to your children of the MIRACLES THAT THE ONE GD OF ISRAEL PERFORMED FOR HIS FAVORITE SPECIAL PEOPLE , THE JEWS.

Its NOT  a night to say GD CREATED THE HEAVENS AND  THE EARTH,
the scoffers and the goyeem will deny that.
ITS A NIGHT TO REMEMBER  WHAT THE WORLD WITNESSED AT MT SINAI 
AND WHAT THE WITNESSES AT MT SINAI WITNESSED IN EGYPT. 
THAT CAN NOT BE DENIED. THE MIRACLES OF PLAGUES. THE TIMES WHEN THE EGYPTIANS PERISHED. Its a time  the JEWS FINALLY,  finally  finally cried to the ONE GD OF  ISRAEL and not  foreign gods.
 IT WAS  A TIME WHEN HASHEM HEARD OUR CRIES……… ‘HELP US ! ! ! ‘ 
 GD WANTED THE EGYPTIANS TO SUFFER FOR THE PAIN THEY CAUSED  US
, and  HE ‘hardened pharoahs heart to MOSES’,
 so HASHEM can execute more suffering upon pharoah and egypt.
Measure for  measure.
.
TODAY ISRAEL IS AGAIN SUFFERING
TODAY ISRAEL AGAIN TURNED FROM HASHEM.
We turned during the 1ST temple then the 2ND temple, then the spainsih inquisitions and germany 1800’s and 1900 ’s 
The prophets warned us we will have suffering if you dont return to GD.
and we didnt listen, instead we killed the messengers.
 
This is NOT a night to show your non jewish friends HOW JEWS ACT.
Its a night to show the ONE GD OF ISRAEL HOW YOU ACT.
TODAY HASHEM IS WAITING FOR US TO CRY OUT AGAIN.
HASHEM….HELP US ! ! !
*WE WILL DO*
KOSHER  and MEANINGFUL PESACH TO ALL

I have hardened his [Pharaoh's] heart … in order to execute My miracles within him (Exodus 10:1).

Many commentaries raise the question: If God rendered Pharaoh unable to learn from experience, why did He then punish him for refusing to release the Israelites?

The answer lies in an under standing of free will. Many psychologists believe in “psychic determinism,” that various circumstances can so affect people that they have no freedom of choice. People therefore act in certain ways because they must do so. Such concepts have been introduced in trials of those who have committed heinous crimes. So many lawyers have pleaded to the jury: “He was raised in such a terrible environment that he did not know better.”

Torah rejects this idea. While many circumstances may impact upon a person, no human being with an intact brain is ever deprived of freedom of choice. We are always responsible for our actions. This concept is a pillar of the Torah’s concept of human freedom.

The about-to-be-liberated Israelites were thus told: “I will indeed harden Pharaoh’s heart and put great pressure upon him, but that will not deprive him of freedom of choice. Pharaoh will remain free and therefore will be held responsible for his behavior. In preparation for your liberation and ultimate acceptance of the Torah, you must retain this principle: people are always responsible for their actions.”
Today I shall …

try to realize that I have free will, and that whatever my circumstances may be, I will always retain freedom of choice to do good or evil.

ADDITTIONAL COMMENTARY FROM AISH HA TORAH:
Do not sacrifice [the Passover offering] while you are in possession of chametz (leaven) (Exodus 23:18). Chametz and matzah have many symbolic explanations. What ever the symbolic meaning may be, one fact cannot be denied. For the few days of Passover, chametz and matzah are antithetical. The Passover seder cannot coexist with chametz. This point is clearly stated in the first of the traditional four questions near the beginning of the Haggadah: “All other nights we eat both chametz and matzah; but this night, only matzah.”

Passover tells us that we cannot maintain two opposites, but must make a commitment one way or the other. As Elijah said to the Jews who worshiped idols: “How long will you vacillate between two contradictory ideologies?  If Hashem is God, then follow Him. If Baal is god, then follow him” (I Kings 18:21).

People who can take a definite stand can also open themselves to any needed change when they are shown that they are wrong. However, people who constantly vacillate can always find excuses to slither out of improving themselves.

The above verse taught the about-to-be-liberated Israelite and their descendants a vital principle: Do not try to maintain mutually contradictory ideologies.
Today I shall …

try to rid myself of mutually contradictory concepts, and instead make a commitment to a way of life that I can fully accept.
