Rushing spirituality


R' Tzaddok haKohen of Lublin commented that only a person's initial entry into serving Gd should be with haste, like the Pesach we observed in Egypt and unlike the Pesach we have observed in the generations since.

R' Chaim Zuckerman explained that one must guard that initial instant when his desire to serve Gd is awakened, and hasten to use that inspiration to free himself from slavery. Afterward, the long haul begins.

(Otzar Chaim to Sh'mot 12:11)

Good moed,
