Birdie in tree (2)Happy April! I don’t know about you, but here in Israel it feels like Spring. The weather is warmer, the days are longer, and all the little birdies are chirping “Pesach, Pesach, Pesach.”

Spring is definitely in the air.

In the Sassen home we’ve rolled up our sleeves, vacuumed up some dust from hard-to-reach out-of-the-way places and sent boxes of stuff that we’ve been storing for years home with our married daughters.

I’m feeling lighter and breathing easier already.

But that’s the easy stuff.

As we get closer to the week of Passover, the Festival of Freedom, something happens. Our To Do Lists get longer along with the lines in the stores, neighbors compare how much of the cooking and cleaning they’ve done – did you do your refrigerator yet?! – and people start discussing the prices of food, clothing, rent-a-cars and family excursions. The pace quickens to a mad rush and it feels like a spin cycle of frenetic energy hits the air and sucks you in along with it.


Did you know it doesn’t have to be this way?

You can choose to do things a little differently.

How would you like to slow down the pace and reduce expenses? Eat simpler meals and enjoy quality time with family? Ponder G-d’s grace and explore the spiritual depths of the holidays?

It is possible to prepare for the chagim (holidays) in a calmer, more balanced way that leaves you feeling more rested, happier, and in alignment with your deepest values.

We have 20 days left until Pesach, until we sit down at our beautifully laid tables and celebrate freedom and our exodus from Egypt. You still have time to change the pace and do things differently so you can honor and celebrate the holiday without doing major damage to your emotional and financial wellbeing.
