Pesach ended, and what continues ...
We have reached the end of Pesach, but it is difficult for us to separate ourselves from all this beautiful atmosphere.
The closeness to our Creator, the precepts and customs that accompany us on Pesach, all this changes when the holiday ends, perhaps that is why we have Isrú Jag ? (The day linked to the holiday).
On this "Isrú Jag" day it is customary to eat and drink a little more than usual on the day after the festival.
(El Rama, -Or HaChaim 429-)
Renowned Rabbi Yosef Caro, author of the Shuljan Aruj, mentions that in the Talmud Jerusalem calls this day "Bere de Moada" (son of the holiday).
On this day the person must try to retain the flavor of the holiday honored the day after it with festive meals, in the midst of a joyful spirit.
In your food you should add something that distinguishes it from the others, in honor of this day, and in this way it will be considered as if you had brought an expiatory offering to the Great Temple, as was customary in those times.
Blessed is he who does so, sharing a meal with his family and friends, amid songs praising our Creator. For his table is compared to the altar of the Great Temple, and the Creator considers it as if he had indeed brought a sacrifice to cleanse all his faults that he may have committed during the holiday.
It is also a custom to start with the reading and study of the Pirkei Avot (Treatise of principles of ethics of our Fathers).
This is a custom dating from the time of our first Sages.
Each week a chapter is read so that the entire Pirkei Avot is completed for the first time on the Shabbat before Shavuot.
Thanks to Hashem, because although this beautiful festivity ended, we are never alone, the Torah, the Precepts accompanies us, but above all we know that we are accompanied by the One who protects us at every moment and who freed us: The Blessed Creator !
