In every generation, a person is obligated to see himself as if he himself has come out of Egypt.
The Baal Shem Tov would eat three festive meals on the last day of Passover. The third meal, which would be held toward the evening, was called "Moshiach's meal," because on the last day of Passover there is a revelation of the light of Moshiach.
- Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak of Lubavitch
True freedom is freedom from limitation - whether external or internal, whether physical, psychological or spiritual. Mitzrayim, the Hebrew word for "Egypt," means "boundaries" and "constrictions"; yetziat mitzrayim, "going out of Egypt," is the endeavor to transcend limitation, to rise above all that inhibits the soul of man.
We are living in quite unusual times, especially for Jews. Remarkably, perhaps miraculously, Jews of all ages and backgrounds, are now taking steps to return to the heritage of their ancestors. Hence, the growing interest in kashruth, and kosher homemaking. While you may or may not have already decided to kosher your home, it's important that you realize that making your home kosher is not only the fulfillment of a religious precept, but also a vital social and national action. By making your home kosher, any Jew, from anywhere in the world will feel welcome in your home, and by taking this important step, you will also be saying that you wish to identify with the Jewish people, and be a part of their cultural legacy. One can become obsessive about almost any activity in life. Koshering one's home can seem overwhelming, but it need not be.
