Happy Passover, Chag Pesach Sameach, Ramadan Mubarak and Happy Easter!

Earlier this week, I realised  that this year, the Abrahamic family of religions celebrate in close proximity to each other: Ramadan and Lent overlap, Passover and Easter commence on the same day, on 15 April – a rare occurrence ever since the Council of Nicaea in 325 separated Christian Easter computation from the Jewish calendar. Wouldn’t it be a good idea if we all focused more on what we have in common, rather that what separates us?

Happy Passover, Chag Pesach Sameach, Ramadan Mubarak and Happy Easter!
