On Sunday, March 27, 2022 at 2:00 pm we held our Twelfth Annual Community Passover Seder on Zoom. We were reminded that the Exodus did not just happen in Egypt. We only need to hear or read the news to know that the Exodus story continues to be repeated all over the world. Freedom is in danger. Innocent people are fleeing their homes today! At Passover, we celebrate the Exodus. We celebrate all who struggle for freedom. And, we encourage the continued struggle toward freedom - knowing that we will not be free until everyone, everywhere is free.
Using our own Haggadah, there was storytelling, ritual, singing and celebration. We retold the ancient story of liberation, contemplated oppression and slavery in our own times, continued the journey toward universal freedom and justice, and rejoiced in the arrival of spring.
As a community, we asked the difficult questions, searched for meaningful answers and explored shared traditions and values as we dedicated ourselves to working together to create a better, more peaceful and more beautiful world.
We had a robust turnout and the response from attendees was positive and heartwarming. As we say every year: Next Year in Jerusalem! Next Year Together!
