Liberation and Renewal: Applying the Spiritual Work of Passover to the High Holy Days

9:30 PM Eastern

Our Sages taught, “In every generation a person is obligated to see him or herself as if he or she went out of Egypt.” The work of seeing the Exodus as our story is a perpetual task. Despite the association between this insight and Passover, the work of discerning the ways in which each of us in this moment is enslaved and is being offered the possibility of redemption as applicable to the High Holy Days as it is to Passover. Join Rabbi Michael Knopf for a special workshop based on his new book “Thirty Days of Liberation” to explore how we can make the most of the High Holy Day season by discovering pathways for personal and social liberation in the Exodus story.
