witnessing its miraculous
rebirth.
That Soviet Jews still
remember that they are Jews
is a miracle. That they are
permitted to leave the Soviet
Union after so many years is
a miracle. That their children
can be taught to appreciate
the values and ideals of the
Jewish heritage is a potential
miracle.
There is a great difference,
however, between the
miracles of the first Passover
and the miracle of today. In
the original exodus, the Hag-
gadah declares that God
alone was the redeemer. "Not
by an angel, not by a Seraph,
not by a messenger, but God
himself, the Holy One,
redeemed the people." For to-
day's deliverance, for the
passage to freedom taking
place before our eyes, God has
sent us a challenge. He
doesn't want to do it alone. He
wants partners. He wants us
to be his shareholders in the
enterprise of liberation.
The miracle is wrapped in
fear because what is open to-
day can be closed tomorrow.
The open door is the policy of
one man, Mikhail Gorbachev.
We do not know how long that
door will remain open. If the
Soviet Union feels Jews are
no longer concerned with
what is happening or the
world is no longer interested,
Soviet authorities may begin
to shut the gates, as they have
done in the past. We must be
united as never before to
enable thousands of our peo-
ple who were separated from
us to obtain freedom and
dignity.
One word we cannot yet say
is dayenu — we have done
enough. It is not enough to
take our brothers and sisters
out of the Soviet Union. It is
not enough to bring them to
Israel. It is not enough to give
them and their children a
taste of Jewish learning and
observance. It is not enough
to clothe them and feed them.
It is not enough to help them
through the first days of their
deliverance. We cannot say
dayenu until they stand on
their own in Israel and
understand their Jewish
heritage.
When we will have brought
our brothers and sisters from
slavery to freedom, from sor-
row to joy, from darkness to
light, from bondage to
redemption, then, and only
then, will we be privileged to
say dayenu. May that day
come speedily in our time. 0
