Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem, Torah, Tzav, Vayikra (Leviticus), Pesach, Shabbat HaGadol

What does Freedom look like? When does a transforming process of freedom involve the pursuit of more control in our lives and the tightening of the reins of our grasp on our existence? And when does the pursuit of real freedom depend on seeking less control?
Seven insights from the Haggada and meaningful questions to ponder for seder night mirror the movement from slavery to freedom in our individual and international lives today.
