Passover’s Legacy of Civic Responsibility

As Passover approaches, we prepare to celebrate the seder, that home ritual combining symbolic foods and behaviors that enliven the Haggadah script, telling the story of redemption from slavery. Ask most people what brought about that exodus from slavery to freedom and they may say God, ten plagues, the leadership of Moses/Aaron/Miriam or even the stubborn vanity and ego of Pharaoh. But a critical incident recorded in the Torah may have been the key tipping point in the making of the Passover miracle.
