Embody the Bitterness

Our enslaved ancestors cried out. We too were slaves in Egypt! People today are still enslaved! We cry too.

Discussion topic: What does contemporary slavery look like? Where do we see its manifestations at home and abroad?

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יי אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, אֲשֶׁר קִדְּשָנוּ בְּמִצְוֹתָיו וְצִוָּנוּ עַל אֲכִילַת מָרוֹר

Baruch Atah Adonai Eloheinu Melech Ha’olam Asher Kideshanu B’mitzvotav V’tzivanu Al Achilat Maror.

We acknowledge the Unity of All and express gratitude for the opportunity to connect by eating bitter herbs.

A horseradish-infused potato-vodka shot will get those tears flowing!


Buy a big bottle of potato vodka and fresh horseradish root. Cut up the root. Put it in the bottle. Store at room temperature for at least 3 days (the longer you store it, the stronger the horseradish flavor will be!). Put it in the freezer. Serve chilled. Expert tip: post-Seder leftovers are great with tomato juice for a Passover morning Bloody Miriam.
