Seder for the Soul

The 15 Steps of the Passover Seder as a Guide to Self-Growth

Freedom and Responsibility

Freedom is not defined as coming and going as you please. True freedom is making independent choices -- and achieving meaningful goals in life.

Idealism, Chametz, and Freedom

Trying to make the world a better place is a deep drive within every human being. But somewhere along the way, many give up and trade in that value for more creature comforts.

Barriers to Freedom

Freedom from physical slavery is the first exodus. Then comes freedom from psychological enslavement. Passover shows us how to break lose from our mental chains.

Commandments Equal Freedom

Disciplining oneself to observe the mitzvot of the Torah sounds about as fun as twisting oneself into a pretzel. But as any virtuoso will testify, it is from discipline that greatness springs forth.

Freedom and Self Awareness

Humans can sometimes get stuck in a trap of self-delusion that is as confining as any prison. The good news is there's a way out.

Four Sons, Four Questions

What is really going on with the Four Sons, how do they relate to the Four Questions -- and what does it mean for us today?

The Passover Paradox

Exile means learning who we are not and who we would never want to be; redemption means discovering our true identity.

The Empty Chair Prayer

The Jewish people have suffered immeasurable tragedy in the last century alone. The crisis of today demands our utmost attention.
