Supernatural dedication – the seventh day of Passover

The situation was dire – the sea on one side and the Egyptian army on the other. If we try to imagine ourselves in the same situation, we will sense the despair they must have felt then.

The day that seals the seven days of Passover and is termed Shvi’i shel Pessah (Seventh of Passover), which begins this year on Thursday evening and ends on Friday night, is different from the other days of the holiday in that it is a yom tov – a special day in which melacha (certain types of activities) are forbidden, as on the first day of Passover.

We will hear The Song of the Sea read in the synagogue.
