THIS YEAR THE ISSUE IS ALSO DARFUR



When we, Jews, say in every generation somebody tried to annihilate us but failed we do not say ONLY us. Hillel dictum begins with"If I am not to myself, who will be for me?" is followed with"And if I am only for myself, who am I?" and ends with"And if not now, When?"

So, Rabbi Stern, appropriately, in his piece Why I am not going to remember this Passover?" calls us to help the people of Darfur who also face destruction.

Fortunately, his is not the only cry in the wilderness, it joins a growing coalition. Here they are and may their efforts be blessed on this Passover night.
