Pho­to by Meg Boscov

It’s Passover, and there’s so many things we might pass over in our dai­ly lives, tiny things that, when focused upon, reveal the large­ness of life. 


As Charles Glass­man said, “Passover is the sto­ry of the lib­er­a­tion of body and spir­it. In it comes a les­son of humil­i­ty that belief in some­thing larg­er than ourselves…can free us from the bondage of our prim­i­tive instincts and those of oth­ers.” Is it per­haps an atten­tion to the “tiny” that shows our belief in some­thing larg­er? That is this Sunday’s ques­tion from the suc­cu­lents.



Meg Boscov is a pho­tog­ra­ph­er who lives and works out­side of Philadel­phia where she con­tin­ues to pur­sue her careers in ani­mal-assist­ed edu­ca­tion and dog train­ing. She can be reached on insta­gram at meg­boscov.
