We made something special for your Passover. Read on for an excerpt from Bend the Arc’s 2022 Passover Resource — and download Four Cups of Liberation to use at your seder.
This year, our new Passover resource reflects on the radical idea that we can all truly be free.
Check out this excerpt from Four Cups of Liberation:
Cup 1: Liberation is Real
Do you believe liberation is possible, really possible? Because in this moment, in the third Passover of a pandemic, as a backlash against racial justice and equality and history washes over this country, are we really able to believe that all of us, no matter our race, class, or faith can be truly free?
It’s understandable if we’re tired. It’s understandable if our moral imaginations are constricted in a place of narrowness. But the Passover seder is an invitation to break out of those confines; it’s an invitation to believe. We can be free—and free from the white supremacy, antisemitism, and racism that shape the society we live in.
One early downloader shared, “These readings are beautifully written, thought provoking and hands-on. I will share at my Seder Friday night and forward these powerful words to friends, family, and colleagues. Many thanks. Here's to a meaningful and lively Pesach for all!”
We hope you also love the inspiring illustrations and readings you'll find in Four Cups of Liberation.
As a whole, they paint a picture of what liberation can look like — and of the work we must do to get there, together.
Chag Pesach sameach. Wishing you a joyous Passover,
The Bend the Arc team
