VISION FOR ISRAEL 2020 PASSOVER GREETINGS

“When the Lord goes through the land to strike down the Egyptians, He will see the blood on the top and sides of the doorframe and will pass over that doorway, and He will not permit the destroyer to enter your houses and strike you down.” Ex. 12:23

Passover, a seven-day commemoration of the Jewish Exodus from Egypt begins this year at sunset Wed. 8 April and concludes at nightfall on Wed.15 April. In most years, families and friends across the country gather for Pesach in homes, halls, and hotels to celebrate the annual Seder meal. Together the nation recalls in song and story the biblical deliverance, under the leadership of Moses, from the slave pits of Egypt, the ten plagues preceding it, and escapes from death because of the blood of the Passover lamb. This year, many people in Israel, especially the elderly will not be joining family and friends due to the coronavirus restrictions placed on the nation's residents. Please remember those who will be alone on one of the most important nights and holidays of the year. Pray that the Lord will draw near to them. Our Vision for Israel team extends the warmest holiday greetings to our friends near and far.
