CSJO: Second Cup
(raise second cup of wine)
ALL: The fate of every Jew is bound up with the fate of the Jewish people and the destiny of the Jewish people cannot be separated from the destiny of all humanity. Let us drink this cup of wine to symbolize our pledge to break the bonds of slavery for all who are not free.
(Drink the second cup of wine)
Reader 29: At this point in our festivity, let us reflect upon the significance of Passover. Passover celebrates freedom. Can we be free while others are not?
ALL: If there are people anywhere who are oppressed, then we cannot celebrate Passover with a clear conscience.
Reader 30: "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
Injustice to any people is a threat to justice to ALL people.
I will not remain silent in the face of injustice."
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
