  • There are more kinds of borders


    jarenvijftigI get confused more and more. It came out that somebody who was officially declared dead was alive, as if he were in deep sleep. At the same time discussions are going on about euthanasia. Sometimes you hear voices again to reintroduce European borders, while at the same time people contemplate to abolish the mandatory vida for some countries. Many values that were absolute in the eyes of of our grandparents were considered as absolute, we consider as obsolute and even worthless in these days. At the same time we define borders that were not foreseeable in days of our grandparents, such as the division between church and state and religion personal and private, seculier normal and therefore setting a standard.


    Dear reader, I understand that you think that I am confused. But I am! But am I confused or is Society as such footlose? What to do with such a confused and  erring society?

    Why is the Exodus from Egypt so important in our Judaism? Every day we remember the Exodus from Mittzraim and the slavery. Pesach is the most complicated Holiday of the year.

    Just the preparations did traumatize many housewives. No breadcrumb will be in our ownership. Completely exhausted we joined at a beautiful Seidertable. Still we have to wait for quite some time before dinner can start. We are talking about the slavery in Mitzraim. We show the Matzoth, but we still do not eat them. And when we drank one cup of wine in a leaning position we must wait for hours we start with the second cup. Rules, rules,and more rules.
