Tomorrow night at sundown, millions of Jews around the world will celebrate Pesach, the Festival of Unleavened Bread that is usually called Passover in English. In Israel and among Reform Jews, the holiday will last seven days but eight among Conservative and Orthodox Jews outside of Israel.
So, I thought that I would wish those celebrating the holiday with me a Happy Passover.
The holiday commemorates the Exodus of the Jews from Egypt. Each generation is asked to recall what it was like to be slaves and to know freedom. Sadly, there are still people enslaved in our world -- literally and figuratively. May the day come when all know freedom and dignity.
