In Search of Freedom: A Passover Seder for Darfur- The Second Cup of Wine- A Call to Our Elected Officials
The Genocide Intervention Network (GI-Net) has created a powerful and accessible activist tool called 1-800-Genocide. When you dial this number, you will be connected to the offices of your state or national representatives or to The White House (Note: The White House does not accept calls after business hours). GI-Net also provides you with updated talking points so that you can urge your elected officials to take meaningful action to help end the genocide in Darfur. Moses had his staff; we have our cell phones!
Please have one person at your table make a call, using the speaker feature so that others can participate in the experience.
Upon completion of the call, we fill our cups, recite a blessing, and drink the second cup.
Blessed are You Eternal One, Sovereign of the world, Who creates the fruit of the vine.
Baruch Atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech Ha-olam, Borei p'ri ha-gafen.
