Avadim hayinu hayinu. Ata b'nei chorin.

Once we were slaves in Egypt. Now, we are free.

Each year we tell the story of the Exodus, and of the Passover, as a reminder that freedom is something we cannot take for granted, and that it something that too-often comes with a price.  This year, we remember the sacrifices that have been made to keep us free, and the work that is still needed to bring freedom to those who still fight for it.  

This year, we celebrate where we are, for it is what we are free to do.

Next year we hope to celebrate in Jerusalem, in a world where everyone is free.
