It offers the opportunity to see new sights on your annual journey out of the Egypt and is available for free download.
“The story of the Exodus is of particular importance to Jews from the former Soviet Union. The seder offers us an opportunity to explore the parallels we find with the history of the physical and spiritual journeys of Russian Jews,” said Yigal Kotler, Director of Russian Speaking Outreach for the Global Day of Jewish Learning.
How do the paths you have taken in life help you understand the journey out of Egypt? What actions can we take to contribute to these journeys? The Exodus involves both the physical passage out of Egypt and the passing of the story through the generations.
