Shabbat HaGadol

“Our Passover story teaches us the deep and profound truth: there is no way to peace; peace is the way.”

This Shabbat Hagadol going into Passover, Senior Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum addressed the moment, speaking about learning from both the oppressed and the oppressors; about centering our movements for peace; about using language and asking the questions that bring us closer to peace; and, to love.
