Pesach 5782/2022

‘From slavery to freedom:’ The account of the Exodus from Egypt is the meta-narrative of Judaism and all humanity. There is not a day or festival when we are not called upon to be mindful of it. The Haggadah tells us that it recurs in every generation. The struggle for a world of freedom, justice and dignity is happening before our eyes. We are commanded to tell the story.

Our rabbis have recorded three new short videos, which you will find on our YouTube channel Pesach playlist here. Still to come, video recording of Albie Sachs and John Schlapobersky in conversation on The Meaning of Liberty, facilitated by Rabbi Jonathan Wittenberg.


The Haggadah

Sunday 3rd April at 8.30pm

Rabbis Zahavit Shalev and Jonathan Wittenberg explore how the Haggadah works: its personalities, what it tells us, what it fails to tell us and how our own family histories and inner lives interweave with its story.
