A Friendly, Participatory, Egalitarian Conservative Synagogue in Rockville, MD



Pesach 5782 begins at sundown on Friday, April 15, 2022

“B’khol dor va-dor [in every generation],” the Haggadah tells us, “chayyav adam lir’ot et atzmo k’illu hu yatza mi-mitzrayim [we are obligated to view ourselves as if we came out of Egypt].” Pesach is our opportunity—our challenge—to vicariously re-experience the bitterness of slavery and the triumph of liberation. At the seder and throughout the week of Pesach, we learn the lessons of freedom—the importance of the freedom that we achieved thousands of years ago, the importance of the freedom that many of us achieved years or generations ago, and the importance of the freedom for all people that we are obligated to strive for even today.

May the taste of captivity we experience during this crisis help us better appreciate the gift of freedom we normally enjoy and enhance our understanding of the meaning of this holiday.
