April 6, 2024 – Shmini 5784

 

This week we are entering into the new Hebrew month of Nisan. The rabbis debate whether this month or Tishrei (the month with Rosh HaShanah) are the beginning of the year. Some say both. Creation is a process. As we look ahead to the new month we also look back at the last six months – what seeds were planted that we can reap now? What seeds can we plant now to harvest something new in Tishrei? Let’s get started.

Passover is an opportunity for spiritual, social, and political transformation. The triumphant journey of the Israelites from slavery to liberation was not a one-time event that occurred thousands of years ago. From the story of the Exodus from Egypt emerges the most powerful claim of our tradition: the eternal possibility that we can move from slavery to freedom, from darkness to light, from degradation to dignity. We know that none of us is free until all of us are free, but we cannot work toward liberation when we are trapped in despair. This year, we offer some tangible pathways to awaken our ability to pursue justice and freedom globally, locally, and in our own homes.
