Some are still Slaves

Wishing all a wonderful Pesach.  I hope the journey from slavery toward freedom brings you hope and renewal.   For some people in our world today they are slaves. They “belong” to another human being.  Slavery exists in 21st century sadly.  Passover comes to remind us that if one person is not free then we are all not free.  Don’t just say the words, “Avadeem Hayeenu”  Once we were slaves but now we are free-but imagine all those for whom slavery is their state of being.

Whether in war-torn Congo or south east Asia, or women enslaved in lives of prostitution in Europe or the sweat shops of downtown Los Angeles, we who have been born in freedom must be called to work for the true freedom of others.  

Happy Passover.
