In our celebration of the Passover seder, each of us are asked to see ourselves as if we are personally being redeemed from Egypt. We retell and symbolically reenact the story of the Israelites' experience of harsh slavery and their miraculous redemption after the ten plagues.
But, another crucial part of the Exodus experience as told by Jewish tradition, are immense acts of spiritual resistance that began well before the ten plagues hit Egypt. These inspirational stories of how the Israelites (and others!) were able to reclaim their humanity in the midst of tyranny have much to teach us about being agents of hope and change today.
Come learn, think and discuss with Rabbinic Fellow, Ilana Zietman, over lunch.
