chewed and tasted. It is not
enough to talk abstractly
"about" oppression, to
analyze the causes which led
to slavery, to read "about" the
forced labor camps. To the
best of our ability we are to
experience the lives embit-
tered by totalitarian punish-
ment. To fast on Yom Kippur
is part of the process of "afflic-
ting the soul"; to taste the bit-
ter herbs is part of the process
of feeling the afflictions of
body and spirit which a sub-
merged society experiences.
Yet when the maror is
eaten, it is mixed with the
cinnamoned haroseth,
perhaps to teach us that
memory cannot be immersed
only in darkness and despair.
The sweet mixture is not the
dominant taste as the maror
is dipped in the haroseth. The
haroseth is not meant to
eradicate the bitter, only to
remind us that there is
goodness in the world,
however small, and hope in
the future, however slight.
Without the haroseth, the on-
ly lasting memory would be
that of the torture and the
shame.

Elijah's Cup

Some leave the fifth cup
empty, some fill it with wine.
We follow the custom of Rab-
bi Naftali of Ropschitz. He left
the fifth cup of Elijah empty
until the drinking of the third
cup and the opening of the
door. He passed the empty
vessel around, asking each
member to pour some of his
wine into the cup. When it
returned to him, it was filled.
Then Reb Naftali sang
"Eliyahu Ha-navi" and cited
a statement of our sages:
"Israel will not be redeemed
except through its own ef-
forts." Faith in the coming of
the Messiah calls for involve-
ment in this life.
Our people suffered in
Egypt and yet we are told,
"You shall not abhor an Egyp-
tian because you were a
stranger in his land." (Deut.
23:3) Pharaoh decreed the
drowning of Hebrew children
but when the Egyptians
drowned in the Red Sea, our
Rabbis told a tale of the
angels being chastized by God
for rejoicing at the death of
His children. The Bible
remembers Shifra and Puah,
the two Egyptian midwives
who saved Jewish infants
from the Pharaoh's decree of
death at the risk of their own
lives. The Bible records the
gifts and loans which the
Egyptians offered the
Israelites before their exodus.
The Rabbinic commentator,
Rashi, points out that Egypt
opened its land to Israelites
when there was famine in the
land of Canaan.
