  1. The Israelites walked through the Sinai desert in the heat, drought, sandstorms and food shortages, all in order to reach the promised land which is the Land of Israel, the land of the Jewish people according to a divine promise as written in all the holy books of the three monotheistic religions. Passover is a holiday in which the Egyptian enemy who abused the people of Israel received the plagues of Egypt and a strong hand brought the people out of slavery and the slavery of exile. But since then we have been captives in exile and extermination and attempts at extermination, but it will not help - the Jewish people have returned to their homeland and no wave of heat, terrorism, slavery will be able to defeat us.
    Happy Passover.
