Women’s History Month: READ Woman On Fire

Passover is a Jewish holiday that commemorates the liberation of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt, as described in the biblical Book of Exodus. During this holiday, Jews retell the story of their ancestors’ enslavement and their journey to freedom.

One of the central themes of Passover is leaving the “narrowness” of slavery and oppression for the freedom of self-determination. The Hebrew word for Egypt, “Mitzrayim,” is derived from the word “meitzar,” meaning “narrow.” According to Jewish tradition, the Israelites’ physical enslavement was accompanied by a spiritual narrowness, a sense of limitation and confinement that permeated their lives.

Through their liberation from Egypt, the Jewish people were able to break free from this narrowness and attain a sense of personal and national freedom. The Passover Seder, a ritual meal that takes place on the first two nights of Passover, is designed to help Jews reenact this journey from slavery to freedom.

During the Seder, Jews retell the story of the Exodus and participate in a series of rituals that symbolize the journey from narrowness to freedom. For example, they eat bitter herbs to symbolize the bitterness of slavery, and then dip them in sweet charoset to remind them of the hope of freedom. They also eat matzah, a type of unleavened bread that symbolizes the haste with which the Israelites left Egypt.

Overall, Passover is a holiday that celebrates the Jewish people’s journey from the narrowness of slavery and oppression to the freedom of self-determination. Through its rituals and traditions, Jews are reminded of the importance of breaking free from narrow thinking and embracing the possibilities of a life lived in freedom.
