Our retelling of the exodus from Egypt is incomplete if we don’t recognize that others are still enslaved. It is our moral duty to continue working for fairness for our fellow Jews and for those who remain enslaved by racism.

Together, my travel group and I visited Greenwood, MS, where the community at Ahavath Rayim, formerly an Orthodox synagogue, hosted us for Shabbat services. Just as we came from different places yet are united in our Judaism, so, too, did the congregants of Ahavath Rayim show just how diverse – and yet how linked – American Jews can be.
