PASSOVER AND EASTER
We want to take these days of reflection and celebration of Easter and Passover , to think of the meaning of redemption and freedom, which not only has to do with freedom from oppression, but that has to do with the creativity and responsibility of getting to our promised land.
Passover is the holiday of freedom and starts as a covenant family celebration. A memory not only of the time when our ancestors left Egypt, but in that event, every generation and every one of us is released again and again from the Egypt where we live subjected.
In this Easter, as Jewish and Christian-the Last Supper was none other than holding a seder of Passover, the traditional Jewish Passover meal, citizens are called to recognize us as a family, to share bread, drink the same wine and take our freedom responsibly: to answer for ourselves when we are addressed care about how we exercise, how to multiply freedom and bread; and about how we started to and share this blessing with those who are still oppressed by exclusion, hunger, lack of health and education.
That Argentina, blessed in all that it offers, you can see on this Easter redemption of our Nation in the law of democracy and republic.
Rab. Sergio Bergman
