with Kim Bodemer

Every year at the beginning of the Passover seder we proclaim, “Now we are slaves. Next year we will be free.” The Haggadah challenges us to think deeply about slavery, not only as our shared collective story but also the ways in which we remain enslaved. We do this even as we know that slavey continues in many forms. This course will explore slavery in ancient Egypt and how Judaism dealt with this issue in Biblical times. We’ll explore the notion of freedom from the perspective of the Israelites, our American forefathers and ourselves. In the final session, we’ll consider how to incorporate our learning into creating meaningful seder experiences.
