The holiday of Passover is known as the “Season of our Freedom,” alluding to more than just the Jews’ freedom from enslavement in Egypt thousands of years ago: it invokes the true freedom of each and every person in all times and places Spiritual enslavement — the Hebrew word for Egypt (Mitzayim- Metzar) being etymologically related to “straits and limitations” — can come about from without as well as from within: A person may be enslaved to the mores of his society, or he may be a slave to his own passions. Passover is the time to free ourselves from these limitations and let our souls shine, and empower us to be who we are.
