Shalom TBAY! I hope you enjoyed the end of Pesach!
Wondering what we discussed this past Shabbat? Here is a link to Friday night’s D’Var Torah for Pesach: You Shall Not Oppress a Stranger… or Stand Idly By. There are a number of resources for us to use in combatting hate against Asian Americans and those of Asian descent. I recommend you start with stopaapihate.org – the website of Stop Asian American Pacific Islander Hate Center. On the main page is a place where you can report an incident of hate. Also on the site are safety tips in case you are experiencing or witnessing hate. We all need to help put a stop to this.
On Shabbat morning, we discussed the sources of the Four Children in the Torah – and how they different in context and response from what is in the Haggadah. You can find the Source Sheet here.
