Countdown to Pesach 8-Kotzker
The Kotzker Rebbe said, “Do you know where God is to be found? He is in the place where He is invited to enter.” (Siach Sarfei Kodesh, I 71) iGrow-Spiritual Tools: The days before Pesach are a perfect opportunity to invite God into our homes and lives: Before performing any mitzvah, especially in your home, say, “I perform this mitzvah as an invitation to You to enter my home, life, and heart.” “I am cleaning my home to prepare for God’s visit.”
iPray-iAttach-Amidah: “My Master, open my lips, that my mouth may declare Your praise.” Take the three steps forward into the Amidah as if you were going out of your home to welcome a guest.
Haggadah: “Let all who are hungry come and eat.” When we invite the poor into our homes we are also inviting God into our lives. When we begin the Seder I inviting the poor, we are inviting God to be present at our Seder.
