The Passover Haggadah, which records the Seder’s narrative, says that in each generation, man must see himself as if he had personally gone out of Egypt. Jewish mysticism teaches that Egypt and its nefarious Pharaoh symbolize the negative forces that constrict man. The slavery in Egypt represents the emotional and psychological shackles that confine and enslave the human spirit, constraining one’s ability to live up to our fullest spiritual potential.
Chabad of the Delta hosts a Community Passover Seder –open to all members of the community, regardless of affiliation, level of observance or membership – on Friday, April 6 at 7:30 p.m. in the Shadow Lakes Events Center, 401 W. Country Club Drive in Brentwood. Led by Rabbi Dovber Berkowitz, the Seder features explanation and commentary based on mystical and Kabbalistic insights, humor and song.
