From Alfred E. Klein, President
As we join in the Passover festival celebrating the liberation of
our people from slavery in Egypt over 3,000 years ago, our joy is
diminished by the thought of those of our people who are still enslaved
by poverty and who must live in hostile lands under economic, social
and political peril.
The Hagada tells us, "Those who are hungry, -let them come and
eat. Those who would celebrate Passover, let them join us." For the
Jews of the rest of the world, freedom means sharing—helping immi-
grants build new lives. We have a promise to the 50,000 Jews who
will come to Israel this year. Many are coming from conditions of op-
pression in Eastern Europe and Moslem lands. And, for the first time,
thousands are coming from the Soviet Union; thousands who have
risked their jobs, their personal freedom and often their physical
safety to come to their land. To live as Jews among Jews. This strug-
gle to be free is enacted every day. It is one of the great dramas of
our time: a story ofheroism.tenacity and inspiration.
Because we have promised these immigrants all these freedoms,
our contributions in 1972 must be on an unprecedented level—a
level which reflects not only deep concern, but total commitment.
The theme of Passover which is demonstrated by the symbols
and rituals of the holiday is an exaltation of freedom and human
dignity. During the seder, we relate the tale of what happened to our
ancestors 4.000 years ago. Today we have the opportunity to see that
it goes on happening—every day.
In their name and in the name of the hundreds of thousands
of needy Jews overseas who still look to us for aid, the board of
governors and the staff of the Flint Jewish Community Council ex-
tend Passover greeting to you and your family.
