Inclusive Engagement and the History of Passover.

Passover, or Pesach in Hebrew, is a significant Jewish holiday commemorating the Hebrews’ liberation from slavery in Egypt, as described in the Book of Exodus. This 7 day event marks not only a pivotal moment in Jewish history but also a celebration of freedom, resilience, and faith. Understanding its deep historical roots is essential for fostering inclusive engagement in diverse settings. Passover provides a unique opportunity to explore themes of liberty, diversity, and community, which can enrich our collective cultural awareness and appreciation.
