The four questions of Passover are a formal way of asking why we celebrate passover, consume matzah and bitter herbs, and why we recline instead of sit up during the Passover meal. Then we tell the story of how God helped Moses lead our people out of slavery and into freedom. 

Instead of this formality, we'd like you to turn to your neighbor and engage in the first of four short disscussions around our four freedom questions. 

1. Who is free in 2019? Please consider what freedom means, and consider sentient beings beyond humans... such as animals and plants.  (4 min)

2. What challenges are inhibiting full access to freedom in 2019 (4 min)

3. What would people need to do differently to improve all being's access to freedom? (4 min)

4. What is one thing you would be willing to do differently to help improve access to freedom in your life? (4 min)

Even if segregation is gone, we will still need to be free; we will still have to see that everyone has a job. Even if we can all vote, but if people are still hungry, we will not be free…Singing alone is not enough; we need schools and learning…Remember, we are not fighting for the freedom of the Negro alone, but for the freedom of the human spirit, a larger freedom that encompasses all of mankind.
