From Rabbi David

Why is this night different from all other nights? Because on this night we aren't just remembering our captivity in Egypt. This year we are weeping for the captivity of our brothers and sisters in Gaza - today.

Our seders must be different this year. This year, more than ever before, we must embody the obligation of the Haggadah that we see ourselves as if we were enslaved in Egypt. Even if we, ourselves, are not connected directly to the ongoing trauma in Israel - we are all connected to someone who is: A teacher, a friend or a colleague.

There are a number of beautiful prayers and readings that you may consider including in your seder. This supplement is from the Reform movement.

May our prayer that concludes the Seder be shared with more intention than ever before:

לשנה הבאה בירושלים

Next year in Jerusalem!
