Rabbi Uri Regev, Founder and Director of Hiddush, asked me to write a Passover Supplement for inclusion in your family Seder on themes and values upon which both the State of Israel and the United States are founded. That piece is titled:
“Imagine: Liberation, Marriage and Gender Equality in Israel and the Diaspora”
You can find it here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jbvbysnwmfo2b8l/Hiddush%20Seder%20Supplement.pdf
Hiddush is Israel’s leading civic organization dedicated to the implementation of the basic values guaranteed in Israel’s Declaration of Independence – freedom of religion and equality – without which no enlightened democracy can exist. See for more information – http://www.hiddush.org/
In light of President Obama’s extraordinary address to the people of Israel and his commitment to bring the leaders of Israel and the Palestinians together to negotiate a two-state end of conflict peace agreement, Ba-shanah haba-ah Bi-y’rushalayim – Next year [May there be a real peace] in Jerusalem.
Hag Pesach Sameach from my family to yours.
