                                                   PASSOVER MESSAGE 5722

                                                                    
This year, how do we incorporate current domestic and sex abuse of our children  with our Jewish ancestors’ 
fight for freedom?


With Passover quickly approaching it’s a good time to stop and reflect on the power of storytelling. Our stories have the ability to create change. What is the story that your family tells on Passover? Has the same Haggadah 
been used annually since you were in utero?


Now’s the time to change! Many Jewish organizations must take time to consider re-telling the story of Passover as a social change agent for current struggles of freedom. Evaluating the story of Passover gives us the opportunity to reflect, and share a story of an oppressed people in the vein of both remembering and not allowing history to repeat itself. What is the narrative of those who are currently oppressed?
Who has the ability to share their story, and who’s listening?


As young Jews acting for social change are we at liberty to speak of a narrative that may not be our own?


 Passover is the best opportunity we have to share with a large number of people the causes we care about? I hope this year you are able to step up and create awareness within your family about those who are fighting for their freedom today. Create your own modern Haggadah, and tell the new story of freedom. We know that personal stories have the ability to garner a certain amount of empathy for people to connect with strangers, but I don’t anticipate everyone going out and writing their own Haggadah The good news is you don’t have to write your own Haggadah from scratch, but you can make it personal to account for the social justice work that you do! Choose this year to talk about the fight within our community for childrens rights freedom from world hunger, and our struggle to raise our children free from sexual abuse


While the original freedom story remains stagnant, our world around us changes and we as the next generation of Jewish leaders have to bring those around us towards liberation.
