Passover's eternal messages

Washington Jewish Week;3/29/2012, Vol. 48 Issue 13, p23
The author reflects on the eternal messages of the Passover Haggadah. The author notes the Haggadh mirrors both the concern for others as well as for uniquely Jewish issues. As the Jewish people gather around their seder tables in 2012, they cannot help but think of the threats from Iran's leaders and ayatollahs who seek to destroy them. The author prays that the Jews will continually be saved from those who scheme against them, but that the Jews must also do their part for God to do His part.
