The story of how Moses led the Jews out of Egypt is one of the best, and my personal favorite, because while it celebrates Jewish freedom, it respects the 10 plagues that were visited on the Egyptian people because of their stubborn leader.
During the ceremony, the plagues are recited and drops of wine poured out of our full wine glasses — the point is that we cannot be content if others suffered for our happiness. I do wish this idea were more widely circulated!
Akeelah and The Bee is a film I love because it has a similar message — everyone has to win for something to be a victory.
Happy Passover to all!
