Within the framework of this healing month of Iyar, and smack dab in the midst of these days of the counting of the Omer – days of great potential for spiritual growth – this week we encounter the unique and unsung holiday of "the second Passover," called by our sages the Holiday of Second Chances.

In this week’s Jerusalem Lights podcast, Jim Long and Rabbi Chaim Richman reflect on the theme of the universal hope that underlines and uplifts the human condition. It’s the hope in G-d’s promised Redemption – both personal and global – that the whole world is longing to express on every level.
