In this special Passover episode of On the Other Hand, Rabbi Jacobs discusses empathy. The story of Passover asks that we put ourselves in the shoes of those who escaped slavery and travelled to freedom, and that we think about what it’s like to have nothing. But this year, it isn’t enough to discuss this type of tragedy as a thing of the past. Find out why Rabbi Jacobs, president of the Union for Reform Judaism, thinks that this seder should be different from other sedarim in this week’s episode of On the Other Hand.

    This podcast was a special delight, since it was unexpected;beyond the usual Monday Torah portion. I especially enjoyed Rabbi Jacobs linking Passover to the realities for refugees & immigrants.

    Also, I'd like to request that you add a weekly Jewish/Hegrew music piece with analysis, as you did about 10 years ago. They were always so interesting; I downloaded them all & re-listened to them while running or driving. Thanks!
