    It’s Seder night tonight, when we Jews tell the story of the Exodus from Egypt and eat a variety of symbolic foods- matzah, unleavened bread, because the Israelites left in such an hurry they didn’t have time to let their bread rise, bitter herbs- horseradish root- to symbolise the bitterness of the slavery, parsley dipped in salt water to symbolise the tears shed by the slaves, and so on. And as well as the service, we eat a large meal. In my European Ashkenazi tradition, we eat cold fried fish at Seder, no meat at all, and that’s why Chris can smell a faint whiff of fish off me as I’ve been frying this morning before coming into the studio- and fish for over thirty people takes some frying!!!!
    Even if they do nothing else Jewish all year, most Jews go to a Seder. It’s a hugely beloved festival, combining a good story, symbolic foods, prayers, arguments and discussions, and a good meal. What’s not to like? But the message of the story is a profound one for us all. Remember that you were slaves in Egypt. You know what it is to be slaves, confined, prisoners, denied your human rights. And that’s why at many contemporary Seders the conversation and thoughts are not just about the ancient story. Its message is bang up to date. So as we stuff ourselves with cold fried fish, I hope we’ll think of people imprisoned and tortured for expressing their opinions, and opposing totalitarian regimes, of forced labourers and destitute refugees, of trafficked women and bonded workers. And I hope that we- and everyone else too as we approach Easter with its message of hope- will remember that our history tells us we know what it is to be slaves, and so we know that therefore we must value freedom, for all, now and in the future.

    From Rabbi Julia Neuberger

    It’s Seder night tonight, when we Jews tell the story of the Exodus from Egypt and eat a variety of symbolic foods- matzah, unleavened bread, because the Israelites left in such an hurry they didn’t have time to let their bread rise, bitter herbs- horseradish root- to symbolise the bitterness of the slavery, parsley dipped in salt water to symbolise the tears shed by the slaves, and so on.

    And as well as the service, we eat a large meal. In my European Ashkenazi tradition, we eat cold fried fish at Seder, no meat at all, and that’s why Chris can smell a faint whiff of fish off me as I’ve been frying this morning before coming into the studio- and fish for over thirty people takes some frying!!!!
