Why is this night different from other nights?
On this night, we gather to prepare for Passover, outside of our kitchens, in a way our foremothers could have never imagined.
On this night we join as a community to rid ourselves of a different kind of chametz.
What do we cleanse ourselves of tonight?
The exhaustion of cleaning and cooking.
The echo of exclusionary language.
The weight of history.
The fear of women's voices.
The silencing of women's stories.
The violence done to women's bodies.
The pressure to conform to on eimage of who Jewish women are supposed to be.
The lingering belief that this tradition doesn't belong to women.
