What It Means

Religious holidays are not happy times for many people. A stern old bastard named Isaiah once had some advice on this. People said he was crazy, of course…

“Bowing your head like a reed and lying in sackcloth and ashes? Is that what you call a day acceptable to the Lord? Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and set the oppressed free – to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter – when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? If you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.”
Chag Sameach. Happy Easter. Happy Spring.
