Shoshana Spencer. 2021. Redemption. [Digital Collage]
This digital collage was created from a photo I took in 2009 in Jerusalem, Israel.
Matzah is a symbol of redemption, hope and freedom. At the end of the seder we optimistically exclaim, “L’Shana Haba B’Yerushalayim” or “Next Year in Jerusalem.” It is also a symbol of affliction and humility -- a reminder of our collective tribulations -- like the aging ruins of the temple in the Old City. By consuming the Matzah, we may come to embody these ideas more fully.
