30 Days of Liberation: Day 20 – Our Missing Piece

While the Temple stood in Jerusalem, the “Hillel sandwich” of the Seder consisted of roasted lamb from the paschal sacrifice, along with bitter leafy greens and sweet spices, wrapped in soft matzah. Sort of like a kosher gyro. Today, our sandwich looks and tastes different; it lacks its main ingredient: the lamb. So why do we eat an empty sandwich? Because we all lack something – or perhaps someone – big. No one has everything. It is important to know what’s missing, and sometimes, if possible, to seek it out for ourselves. More important is to live despite our lack, enjoying who and what we have.
