Today is Pesach Sheni, 14 Iyar -
Chesed sh b'Hod Happy Second Passover
In Chesed / loving kindness, remind
chevre that today we can have a 'second chance' and we can again give thanks and have gratitude for our
liberation with FREEDOM to reach the splendor of Mount Sinai and be the best that we can be.
A year after the Exodus, G‑d instructed the people of
Israel to bring the Passover offering on the afternoon of the 14th of Nissan,
and to eat it that evening, roasted over the fire, together with matzah and
bitter herbs as they had done the previous year just before they left Egypt.
“There were however certain persons who had become ritually impure through
contact with a dead body, and could not, therefore, prepare the Passover
offering on that day.
They approached Moses and Aaron . . . and they said: ‘. . . Why should
we be deprived, and not be able to present G‑d’s offering in its time,
amongst the children of Israel?’” (Numbers 9:6–7).
In response to their plea, G‑d established the 14th of
Iyar as a “Second Passover” (Pesach Sheni) for anyone who was unable to bring
the offering on its appointed time in the previous month. The day thus
represents the “second chance” achieved by teshuvah, the power of repentance
It is customary to mark this day by eating matzah, shmurah matzah if
possible. Wisdom from Chabad.org
