Passover is the perfect time to reflect on what constraints our freedom (the Hebrew word for Egypt, Mitzrayim, literally translates to “narrow space”), what we can learn from the most famous narrative of the Jewish tradition, and how we can apply the story and themes of enslavement and freedom to our own lives and communities. Let’s get deep with these themes through guided meditation, put pen to paper for a writing meditation, and share in some delicious K4P snacks with neighbors, friends, and community.
