As Biden repeated several times, they're not coming because he's a "nice guy." They're coming because they're desperate.

Vavi— I love your connection to the Condo happy throw-away! We all live with our “packages” of sorrow.
Linda Henry Goodman
01:17:27
After my mom passed away I kept about 10 cartons of "stuff" in my basement and they stayed there for about 10 years. I couldn't bring myself to address them. Then we had a flood in the basement, and nature took care of it for me. I had to throw everything away. But not my memories of my mom.
Ed Grossman
01:17:30
It uses the term "Ulei"--perhaps--there are different places to start. But starting involves seeing where you start from..

He doesn’t mention the magic of the feather
Denah S. Bookstein
01:27:43
Maybe not the style of Yekke’s ?
Ed Grossman
01:30:10
But he has--almost--perfect faith. But really not perfect faith for him...
Denah S. Bookstein
01:30:36
Why we put the crumbs semi- hidden, to discover
Sheri Sprung Morrison (she/her)
01:30:39
Yes, the “almost” is an important word in there.
Gail Levine
01:31:02
The word "SEDER" means "ORDER" and it in following the traditions and sequence of the Seder that we have a feeling of order and security in our lives-Gail

Yekkes slice their challah, not tear it. The ritual that Amichai describes is Searching for Chametz, Bedikat Chametz, performed the night before the Seder. This year it will be done tonight because Shabbat precedes the first Seder and we cannot light candles on Shabbat.

Taibel

Smokey mountains, for some americans associated with dolly parton, menitoning that because of her literacy efforts, inspired the funder [sorry name escapes me] of pj library

I can understand in a way the need to be careful with five pieces because in my less structured home we found past pieces of bread during a cleaning.

That thought to rather give your chametz to the poor than to throw it away - is so thoughtful and full of lovingkindness - from a Jewish soul.
Ed Grossman
02:25:28
Faith is also a principal theme of Pesach...
Ed Grossman
02:31:00
Question: Anytime one starts a poem with "U-lei", doesn't one think about the association with Rachel's poem that starts with the same word?
Ed Grossman
