As spring arrives in New York with just a few weeks before Pesach, let’s celebrate with this icon of the Seder that also shows up at Hallel, B’tzet Yisrael. This psalm, 114, is full of powerful images with its internal questions: Why does the sea flee? Why do the mountains skip like rams? There is perhaps no better celebration of the Passover journey to freedom than this joyful song sung by cantors Schwartz and Davis. Wishing you a Shabbat Shalom!
