It marks the birth of the Jewish people. Its Sabbath and Festival prayers are in memory of the Exodus from Egypt. Its impact on Jewish history stamps it as the supreme event in the ex¬ perience 6f Israel. -¦ The ceremonies of the breaking and the eating of the unleavened bread and the drinking of the four cups of wines , accompanying every Seder observance are not only perennial reminders' that Jews date their beginnings from humble origins - We Were Slaves unto Pharaoh in Egypt - but also constitutes the basic elements of Christianity's '"Last Supper" observance where these symbols are interpreted as the body and blood of its Christ.

But God silenced the angels with the. words, "My children are dying and you are singing!" In this manner the ancient (Continued on Page llA) antiquity, originating as it did over three thousand years agoi Passover's message of freedom is a? startUngly new today as it was in the time of the ancient Egyptian Pharaohs. Its message is not limited to Jews alone but reaches to all • creeds and all nations. The cry "let my people go!" is still heard in many parts of the world, in Soviet Russia and in Arab lands where the descendants of the ancient Egyptian slaves still yearn for freedom, in America where the Negroes are still stivggling to cast off the chains left from the Civil War a century .ago, in South Africa and FUiodesia where the blind arrogance of Apartheid cruelly 'and un- . justiy separates one people from another, creating a master and. slave en¬ vironment, on the continent of Asia where miUions Uve lives of deprivation and hardship according to whims of dictators of the right or the left. THE VERY WORD "Pharaoh'' has^ throughout the-generations, become a symbol of intoloance, greed and darkness, while the Exodus from Egypt has' characterized the struggle for Uberty in land after land throughout the centuries. In the days of the American Revolution the Continental 'Congress ap¬ pointed a committee con¬ sisting of Tbunas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and John Adams to draw up a derign for the seal of the United Stotes, These distinguished founding fathers of the Republic proposed that the seal of our nation shquld be a picture of the crinahg oflhe' Red Sea by the andoit Israelites. Their recommendation was not aco^ted, but their act reflects thie thinking Ot the American cdaQists in those eighteenth century days who inevitobly coin- pared King George in to the old Pharaoh of the Biid6. There are two Talmudic legends connected^ with, the Passover stoiy ^MUt shed a great light on our own time.
