Tonight is the start of the Jewish festival of Passover. I was just listening to a woman on the radio talking about the preparations her family normally make for the festival – cleaning the whole house from top to bottom, clearing out the fridge and freezer, getting rid of any food that has yeast in it… This year she said she felt strange celebrating a Festival of Freedom when she currently felt like a prisoner in her own home.

To all of you celebrating Passover, I wish you a Happy Pesach and am thinking of you as you are separated from family and loved ones at this difficult time.

Tonight is also a beautiful Full Moon. It is a also a Pink Supermoon, and seeing as the night skies are so clear at the moment, we should all get a good view of it!

Whatever you do this evening, I wish you well. Stay safe.
