Passover celebrates God’s deliverance of Israel from slavery in Egypt and represents the freedom and change we strive for in the modern world. Freedom from our inhibitions, fears, and prejudices and a reminder of our responsibility to change, for the better, the life of those enslaved. Traditionally, the Passover celebration includes a Seder (festive meal) which is conducted according to the Haggadah (telling), a text that contains the story of the Exodus.

Wisdom of the Holidays, produced by Debra Gonsher Vinik and edited by David Vinik of Diva Communications, is a five-part web series devoted to uncovering the essential truths that the holidays hold for people of all faiths. Written and narrated by author, journalist, and radio host Rabbi Irwin Kula of the National Center for Jewish Learning and Leadership.

Other episodes in the series are Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, and Hanukkah.

Wisdom of the Holidays was made possible by a grant from Odyssey Networks.
