thought for the day, by parliamentary lawyer daniel greenberg

“To disassociate ourselves from exploitative practices of any kind. So one of the things I try to take away from Passover is a reminder that slavery and exploitation are unhappily very much not matters of ancient Egyptian past, but are all around us, and that I can use my everyday consumer choices and business practices to try to ensure fair and decent treatment and opportunity for all.”

Tftd: Mirvis 17/4/2019

this morning (wednesday 17th), 7.46-7.49am, on bbc radio 4

thought for the day, by chief rabbi ephraim mirvis

Passover: ‘We’ll teach them that the iconic structures for which ancient Egypt is so well known came at great human cost, and that is why ultimately the culture symbolised by the pyramids and the sphinx has long since been consigned to history. We’ll teach them that achievement cannot be measured by the splendour of our edifices alone, impressive as they are, but by the number of generations that continue to embody our values’.”

passover (in the beyond belief series) (presented by ernie rea)

“For Jews the Passover is a time to remember their liberation from slavery in Egypt under the leadership of Moses.
