Make Like A Jew & Flee

Last week, I advised all of my clients and counsel on the other sides of transactions that I would be out of the office for a couple of days for Passover.

I received plenty of “have a nice holiday” messages in response. However, one reply really amused me. “I don’t mean to be ignorant,” a person wrote, “but why do you need to take that much time off from your office if all you do is not eat bread?”

I started writing an answer, sharing how much preparation there is, how wonderful it is to spend hours at the dinner table with family, how long it takes to re-tell the story of the exodus from Egypt, and how I’m going to enjoy having both my kids under one roof for a couple of days.

Then it occurred to me that he mostly cared about his real estate deal, not a recital of how I spend the holiday. So I deleted my first response and instead typed, “I don’t eat bread most days! I just need some R & R like the Jews probably did after they escaped from the Pharoah.”

If you’re celebrating, have a Zissen Pesach!
