Break up into groups of two to discuss the following questions:

  • Have you or your family ever had the experience of being a stranger? Each person take a minute to share a story.
  • Can you think of any contemporary examples of oppression of the stranger? What parallels or tensions exist between these examples, the Passover story, and the story you just shared with your partner?
  • In today's world, what can we do, concretely, to follow the commandment to love the stranger?

After 5 minutes, reconvene, and share thoughts from a few groups.
