Pesah celebrates the Jewish redemption story. And yet, our story can only truly be told as a geulah arikhta—a long, extended, enduring redemption.

With insights from Hadar faculty and activities for children and families, Hadar’s 5782 Pesah Reader will be your guide to finding new meanings and messages in this upcoming holiday.

This reader will help you reflect on our multifaceted redemption story, as we consider our Exodus in terms of its extended duration—from the earliest stirrings of our people’s redemption, to its place in our lives today, to the most complete manifestations of redemption that might yet be brought to the world.
