A Seder Companion:
Strength in Our Time

Pesach is the holiday of finding strength in narrow places. Jews around the world, in every generation, place themselves between the raging waters of the Sea of Reeds. Pharaoh’s army approaches from behind, and the only place to proceed is into the uncertainty of the desert. Where does one find strength and hope as the walls literally close in?

The excerpts from the Hebrew College Passover Companion in this activity offer numerous access points to find the possibility of strength throughout the ancient ritual of our Seder. Through asking questions, eating symbolic foods, and telling our story, we find touchstones of fortitude for our own time.

We are grateful to Hebrew College for contributing this activity,
which features excerpts from the
Hebrew College Passover Companion.
