Celebrating freedom with a memory of enslavement

He's the last surviving rabbi who led a congregation during the Holocaust, and this week he once again celebrated Passover, marking the anniversary of the Jewish exodus from Egypt. Without this event, there would be neither Judaism nor Christianity as we know them today.

While it's a time for celebration, his is tempered by his knowledge that in every generation, there is an existential threat to Judaism. That's really a threat to us all.

Whatever your faith--in a religion, a philosophy, a person or in nothing--I hope we can all agree on the sentiments this rabbi closes with:

This year there are many people who are enslaved and impoverished. Next year may all human beings be free.

Listen to his whole story:

I'm working to make cancer history. Will you help me?
