Brotherly Love

While Jews abroad celebrate an eighth day of Passover on Saturday night and Sunday, many Jews in Israel - especially those of Moroccan descent - will be celebrating the Mimouna. The Mimouna celebrations will begin with a festive meal Saturday night, with large families gathering together to enjoy singing, traditional foods, and spiritual nourishment for the coming months.

The festivities commemorate the hope and belief [Emunah, possibly related to Mimouna, according to some] that just as the Jewish People were redeemed on Passover, so too they will merit the Final Redemption "speedily in our days."Another explanation given for this day is that because of the stringencies against eating chametz on Passover, many people would not eat at each other's homes throughout the weeklong holiday. The Mimouna is therefore a chance to renew ties between families and neighbors, showing that the Jews are united in brotherly love.

  1. Hi,

    I'm sorry for being intrusive in to your blog. But I am Melissa and I am a mother of two that is just trying to get out of an incredible financial debt. See my hubby is away in Iraq trying to protect this great country that we live in, and I am at home with our two kids telling bill collectors please be patiant. When my husband returns from war we will beable to catch up on our payments. We have already had are 2001 Ford repossessed from the bank, and are now down to a 83 buick that is rusted from front to back and the heater don't work, and tire tax is due in November.

    I'm not asking for your pitty because we got our ownselfs into this mess but we would love you and thank you in our prayers if you would just keep this link on your blog for others to view.

    God Bless You.

    Melissa K. W.
