What is Passover/Pesah?


…the enduring testament to the power of possibility.
It’s our job to make it meaningful.

Passover/Pesah 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’re 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.
