Commentary About Passover and the Passover Texts

Who Are You in the Passover Story?

“The story of the Exodus is in us, and we are in that story. But where exactly? Every year the seder asks us to imagine our answers.”

Atzma’ut and Atzamot: The Bones of Israel

Commentary on the Haftarah for Shabbat Chol HaMoed Pesach (Ezekiel 37:1-14)

Opening the Door at Passover

“The Seder recalls our own homelessness as wandering refugees from slavery in Egypt, and even further back, to our ancestor who was called ‘a wandering Aramean’ (Deuteronomy 26:5) … This Passover, we can be moved to do better for today’s refugees.”
