History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days. ~Winston Churchill

Happy Passover!

I really should have posted this yesterday, in time for the first night of Passover, but in this blog I'm lucky if I remember any holidays/significant dates at all! Thanks to Passover for being a multi-day thing, haha. Another striking post shall follow sometime this week.
