From New York City
- Wednesday night I traveled from Manhattan to Suffolk County on Long Island for a Seder at the home of my aunt and uncle. The way you get there is to go through the Midtown Tunnel, get on the Long Island Expressway and travel the thirty-some-odd miles to Dix Hills, New York.
- Because there are about as many Jews in New York than there are in Tel Aviv and they all want to my aunt and uncle’s house for the first night of Passover Seder at the same time, the trip can easily take three hours.
- The Long Island Expressway during the first two days of Passover is God’s way of reminding Jews what wandering around the desert for 40 years must have been like – and that He can make us do it again at any time.
