Jewish Holiday Poem

Poem About Pesach

The Jewish holiday of Passover, which celebrates G-d taking the Hebrews out of bondage in Egypt, is celebrated in the spring. Jews don't eat leavened bread for the week long holiday of Passover. Leaven, which is what makes the bread rise, is replaced with "Matzo", which is a flat, cracker like food, for the week long duration of the holiday. Removing the leaven from one's house is compared on a spiritual level, to removing puffed up forms of pride from one's hearts

Passover

Holiday of new
New Nation
New buds coming out - flowers and leaves
The world mirrors it's newness in trees

I, too, can be new
Get rid of the leaven
That puffs up my soul
Jewish nation has a new role

Humanity takes a new turn
Leave slavery behind
Let each man go free
New faith, love and liberty

Don't be stuck in a rut
Renew, change and grow
Each person can soar to the sky
Freedom awaits--all that's left is to try

Eight days we eat Matzo
Remove our shackles each year
Passover, holiday of newness in spring
Joy of freedom--each year--hear the ring!
