Lisianto, Rodrigo Soldon 2, via FlickrSpring is coming, slowly but surely! In honor of springtime and Passover, a big thank you to Rabbi David Zaslow of Ashland, Oregon, for sharing “The Reason for the Season,” from his new book, Reimagining Exodus, in the Gateway of Seasons. He explores how the changing seasons affect our moods, and poses an intriguing question raised by our teacher, Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi of blessed memory, about whether the Hebrew calendar and its holidays should be reversed for Jews living in the Southern Hemisphere.
