30 Days of Liberation: Day 2 – From Darkness to Light

By Jewish law, “Kadesh,” and thus the Seder, cannot begin until nightfall. Starting Passover in the dark of night mirrors the Passover story and the narrative trajectory of the Seder itself. From slavery to freedom, from ignorance to enlightenment, from despair to redemption. In the Mishnah’s words, “We begin in degradation and end in exaltation.” A reminder that even our darkest nights don’t last. The dawn always comes. The arc of the moral universe may be long, but it indeed bends towards justice. Anticipate the sun; don’t be overwhelmed by the night.
