Photos from gate48’s & Issam Nadaf’s alternative Seder

April 10, 2017

Pesach in the Jewish tradition symbolizes the journey from slavery to freedom. The Hagada (the book of Pesach) tells the story of the Hebrew people as slaves in Egypt and their journey to freedom. Today, more than 3,000 years later, the Hebrew people are free, with their own nation state, but they control the lives of more than 4,000,000 Palestinians.

A Jewish Mitzvah (commandment) that is related to the Pesach is  והגדת לבנך ביום ההוא לאמור “, (vehegadeta lebinch bayom hahu leamor),, “and on that day you shall tell your child”. It calls every generation to tell the story of this journey to freedom. Following this tradition we dedicated our Seder meal to the journey of the Palestinians for freedom, a journey that we as Israelis are committed to support.

We would like to thank all of you for joining our alternative Seder and sharing your stories with us. We especially want to express our gratitude to Issam Nadaf who hosted us this year for the second time. He worked very hard to prepare us a delicious Pesach meal and welcomed us in his own admirable modest way with great joy and hospitality.

Here are some of the beautiful photos made by gate48 member Ilya Rabinovich
