According to the Jewish calendar, the month of Nisan, (April 2- May 1) is the “season of liberation.” As we approach the full moon we are instructed by Talmud to once again prepare the stage for the great retelling of our journey from the narrow place of enslavement out to the frightening unknowns of liberation and, ultimately, revelation. Every Passover we celebrate the courage of our ancestors who dared to be free in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. Miriam stepped out first and fiercely led her people to safety. We recite their story and make it our own.
But we also know that freedom just for some is not enough! The following offerings are designed to accompany you through the journey out of this narrow place of the pandemic and the unrelenting oppression near and far, towards a realized vision of collective safety. This year, in whatever sacred space you create – alone, virtually, or in-person – raise your blessings to our collective liberation.
