What is Passover?

Every year, millions of Jews the world over sit down with family and friends to celebrate Passover, the miracle of our deliverance from Egypt over 3,300 years ago. The story of Exodus, the foundation of our faith and identity, resonates ever so powerfully each time and especially in our time.

In the prayer book we use for the Passover Seder, the "Hagaddah", we recall how we were threatened with annihilation, not once or twice, or more often but in "in every generation, they rise up to see our demise, and the Almighty saves us from their hands".

Today, we again face real threats to our existence. In some places around the world, the threat is physical. In our society, perhaps it is more spiritual, as we tend to forget our historically unprecedented good fortune of religious freedoms and even take them for granted.
