30 Days of Liberation: Day 8 – The Broken and the Whole

We place a broken piece of matzah between two whole loaves because all of us harbor brokenness inside, hiding our pain, sorrow, anger, guilt, and shame under a veneer of wholeness. In this ritual, Passover reminds us, “There’s a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.” When we acknowledge, confront, and repair the ruptures under our masks, we can free ourselves to live lives of wholeness and blessing.
