If we are still slaves—to social approval, to the validation of others, to our appetites, to our addictions, to our egos—how can we celebrate the Exodus from Egypt? How can we celebrate a liberation that has yet to be complete?

Because with the Exodus, the notion of freedom entered our blood and our souls. It changed us to our very core.

We came to know what it is. To desire it. And we became capable of achieving it—on our own. We became innately free.

So that at the Passover Seder this year, we can become actually free.
