Thinking about the 'Passover' today and all that this has meant in the history of a people forever associated with diaspora and displacement. Today in our COVID aware world many more people are coming to grips with the impact of separation and isolation. The biblical Passover in contemporary terms can be interpreted as taking precautionary measures against a plague, families and communities supporting each other in difficult times and an intense awareness of imminent danger. We would do well to learn these lessons.
