At a certain point in the Seder, we remove all the ritual items and reset the table for dinner. The Jewish tradition values the life of the spirit and all those acts that nourish it. But sometimes, even the most spiritually attuned among us must set aside religious pursuits and tend to the matters of this world. “Without bread, there can be no Torah,” reminds the Mishnah. In our journeys to spiritual liberation and awakening, let us not forget to eat; to do all that is necessary to live, and to live well.
