Nirtzah: Concluding

Clip Featured in Truah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights's

At the end of the seder, we pour—but do not drink—a fifth cup for Elijah the prophet, who symbolizes the coming of salvation.

Jointly we can bring salvation; change is coming, but it is not yet here. We come together at Passover to connect our separate stories into the story of new freedom. We must cross the wilderness of change before we can enter a promised land of greater justice, greater freedom, greater peace, and deeper healing.

Next year in a Jerusalem rebuilt with justice!
