Passover Songs

Lizzie Sivitz created this original piece for a joint program with The Tasman Center for Jewish Creativity called The Art of Mezuzah. We are including it here in our Art Haggadah as a visual reminder of the freedom and redemption the Israelites experienced in the Passover story. Mt. Sinai plays an important role in the Passover story, since that is where Moses spoke with God at the burning bush and was told to lead the Israelites out of slavery. After leaving Egypt they made their way to Mt. Sinai where they received the 10 Commandments. This piece reminds us of the intensity, emotion, joy, relief and awe felt at that moment.  -Rabbi Sarah Tasman
