"From the Narrow Confines" ✡ Western Wall Tunnels

From the narrow confines I called out to God, the Lord answered me with abounding relief.

PSALMS (118:5)

מִן הַמֵּצַר קָרָאתִי יָּהּ עָנָּנִי בַמֶרְחַב יָ-הּ

תהילים קי''ח:ה

min ha-may-tzar ka-ra-tee ya a-na-nee ba-mer-khav ya

Jerusalem Inspiration

Psalm 118 is said towards the end of the Seder and uses a key Passover word, ‘confines.’ The Hebrew word for ‘confines’ מ-צ-ר is closely related to the word for Egypt מצרים - mitz-ra-yeem. On an emotional level, Egypt symbolizes the agonizing straits that constrict us. Each of us occasionally finds ourselves trapped, sometimes for physical reasons, such as poverty or illness and sometimes for psychological reasons, such as depression or despair. Passover is the festival of hope and faith, teaching us that the Almighty saves us from all of life’s narrow confines.
