We are so happy to be able to celebrate this holiday of freedom, social justice, and community our new home with all of you.  By having you here tonight, we are placing the foundation for years of love, knowledge, and support for many years to come.  These walls, roof, and floor are turned into "our home" when we are able to welcome our family and friends to laugh, discuss, eat good food, and celebrate the many gifts we have been given! 

This Hagadah was put together with pieces of other Hagadot that celebrate freedom and social justice and work towards the end of injustice, hunger, racism, and oppression.  Although the tradition is to tell the story of the Jewish people's exodus from slavery in Egypt, we believe that it is important to make new traditions in our family that honor and fight the slavery and injustice that is happening today as well.  This is not a complete Hagadah, but hopefully it can guide us through an evening of applying tradition to conversation and appreciation.

We truly feel very lucky to have you as a part of our lives as we develop new roots.

Lots of Love,

Laurie and Josh
