Dvar Tora by Rabbbi Mauricio Balter
“Pesach invites us to think of human beings as the heart of the festivity, their freedom, and their capacity to live their lives with integrity. Denying the suffering of our brothers and sisters in Ukraine and that of the Ukrainian people does not reflect the true concept of the festivity. Elie Wiesel once said, “The mission of the Jewish people is not to make the world more Jewish but to make it more humane,” I agree with him.”
