Between Egypt & Sinai
This coming Shabbat we will be in the home stretch of the 49 day count that commemorates the Israelites’ journey from Egypt to Sinai, from slavery to freedom. A little over 5 weeks ago, on the second night of Passover, we began our march and our count towards day 49. The idea of making each day count is a profound idea. So many of us lead lives running from one meeting to another, see our spouse, kiss the kids, go to bed and then do it all again the next day. With a little under two weeks left until we reach our destination with the holiday of Shavuot, I encourage you to think hard about what is one thing you want to change and how can you achieve that goal by the time the Israelites find their way to Sinai.
We all want to live a life of meaning and purpose. It starts by taking one day at a time.
