30 Days of Liberation: Day 28 – Rejoice

“This is the day the Eternal One has made. Rejoice and celebrate it!” We recite this line in Hallel at Seder’s end. Contextually, the “day” refers to the holiday. But if God is the source of all creation, then every day is “the day the Eternal One has made.” Each and every day calls for rejoicing. It is sinful to be slaves to our own melancholy; a Divine command to to live each day with song, dance, and laughter.
