30 Days of Liberation: Day 30 – Next Year in Jerusalem!

The Seder concludes with the exclamation, “Next year in Jerusalem!” This not only refers to the fact that most Jews have yet to return home, but also that our world remains in an exilic state. As yesterday’s tragic events in Kansas City remind us, our world is still in dire need of repair. “Next year in Jerusalem” is not simply a hope. It is a challenge. Next year, we can and will celebrate Pesah in a world of “salem,” of wholeness and peace, but only if we do all in our power to make it so. Wishing you and yours a joyous and liberating Pesah!
