Easter and Pesach, Eternally Linked

April 11, 2017

Dear Subscriber:

Each week we examine a theme from a variety of points of view. The twin themes for this week are Passover, the first night of which falls on April 10, and Easter, which falls on April 16.

Today’s poem is a poem for Easter about the link between Easter and Pesach, or Passover.

I welcome comments on my poems at

Easter and Pesach, eternally linked,
Although, year to year, erratically synced.
So might both Christians and Jews celebrate
The bond that unites two long-feuding faiths,
Embracing as family, as all cousins should,
Religions that separately serve the same good.
