The egg symbolizes the continuity of life. It can also represent the rebirth that comes after mourning. It reminds us that even amid devastation, we can overcome tragedy, turn our lives around, and start anew —stronger than before.

When we hear about the genocide in Darfur, our hearts break and we are tempted to throw our hands up in despair. But, we must turn our mourning into action. Our mission is to educate, advocate and provide refugee relief. We eagerly look for the day when the people of Darfur can rebuild their lives with renewed strength, hope and joy.

Beitzah Question:

In the face of injustice, what is the tipping point that takes our apathy, anger, despair or compassion and moves us to activism?
