As Passover approaches, we invite you to spend the coming days exploring your relationship to freedom and recognizing the ways in which so many of us are still bound.
How might we discover and channel our gratitude for the ways in which we are free to help liberate others?
This edition’s activities, meant to complement your experience of Passover and including Seder and Omer activities, are also inspired by the following three blessings from the traditional daily morning liturgy:
“Blessed are You, G-d, Sovereign of the universe, Who gives strength to the weary.”
“Blessed are You, G-d, Sovereign of the universe, Who releases the bound.”
“Blessed are You, G-d, Sovereign of the universe, Who has not made me a slave.”
On Sunday, we’ll discover our strength. What makes us strong, especially in the realms of our emotions and spirit?
On Monday, we’ll examine what makes us free, and what keeps us — as individuals and as a community — bound together.
On Tuesday, we’ll examine what it means to be enslaved: What is a slave? What makes someone free? What responsibility does freedom hold?
