“Let My People Go, Again” – A Passover Reading for your Seder

April 18, 2024 | Blog

As we come together this Passover to commemorate the liberation of our ancestors from bondage in Egypt, let us also reflect on the present day with over 130 hostages still held in Hamas captivity. The echoes of the past resound in the cries for freedom today, reminding us that the call to “let my people go” is as relevant now as it has ever been. As we read in the Haggadah every year at our Passover Seder: “In every generation they rise against us to destroy us; and the Holy One, blessed be He, saves us from their hand!”

When we dip the Karpas into the saltwater, let us not only remember the tears shed by our ancestors in slavery but also the tears of those currently held captive in Gaza.

This year, NA’AMAT invites you to keep a seat open at your Seder. This additional seat at the Seder symbolizes our commitment to supporting those in captivity and advocating for their release. Just as NA’AMAT USA stands for the empowerment and well-being of women and children, let this gesture signify our unwavering dedication to the cause of freedom for all.

As we sit around our Seder tables, let us envision a future where all hostages, including our brothers and sisters in Gaza, are reunited with their loved ones in freedom and peace.

In the spirit of unity and solidarity, let us declare together: Hamas, let my people go!
