As I prepare to write a Passover message, I cannot help but think of the similarities between what happened thousands of years ago and what is happening now with the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The “Deliverance” of the Jewish people from Pharaoh’s slavery, ten plagues, one so devastating that the Jewish people were given liberation from bondage as G-d guided the Israelites through the desert wilderness to the promised land.

Today we have our own "plague" affecting the entire world.  COVID-19 has sickened our people, killing hundreds of thousands, and forced the worldwide economy to a halt. This is not the "Angel of Death," but many may feel like it is, especially if a loved one has fallen victim to this unseen "plague."  Our only "Lamb's Blood" for this pestilence is separation, isolation when necessary, Personal Protective Equipment, and patience.  Our livelihoods, families, and patients have all been adversely affected by this pandemic, and it seems as if there is no end.

The Passover message we need to remember is one of "Deliverance". We will survive this Pandemic, hopefully, wiser, sadder, but mindful of the fact that we will come through this together.  Our worldwide Alpha Omega Family has come together more than ever, supporting First responders and each other during these horrific days. During our time in "Shelter-in-Place", let us remember that we may be physically separated from our families, friends, and patients. Still, we have never been closer to each other as human beings.  Even though our Passover Seders may not be what we would want at this time, next Passover, we will be together with our loved ones!

Be patient, be safe, and be well!

Chag Pesach Sameach to all.
