Washington Jewish Week: Two sides of the same coin

Every year, on the first night of Passover, millions of Jews worldwide gather together to celebrate our ancestors’ liberation from Pharaoh’s brutal regime. While telling that powerful story, we also remember the Ten Plagues that wreaked havoc on innocent Egyptians. The tradition of removing 10 drops of wine from each of our Kiddush cups is a profound expression of empathy that is deeply embedded in Jewish values that make me proud to call myself a Jew.
