When you sit down to Seder this week, you will find the traditional 4 questions. What questions do YOU think should be part of our contemporary conversation as Jews? What should we be asking ourselves, as a community? Here are some of the questions congregants raised last Shabbat; I encourage you to bring these to your Seder table, and add your own.
Why is there still oppression when we pray for liberation every year?
Why can’t we achieve world peace?
Why is there an “us” and “them?”
Why are there still so many who fight hunger and poverty?
Why don’t people “do the right thing” instead of acting selfishly or cruelly?
God, why have you chosen to redeem us and what do you expect of us in return?
Why am I here and what am I supposed to be learning?
How does this Passover shape our understanding of ourselves as Jews?
Will next year be the year?
What does true freedom look like and who is truly free?
