Anna Fine Foer

This weekend is called Shabbat HaGadol, the Big Sabbath, for numerous reasons. One of those involves the fact that the Shabbat before their liberation the Israelites were requested to take the animal that would be their Passover sacrifice and tie it to their bedpost and leave it there for the next 4 days. It was inevitable that their Egyptian neighbors would ask about this and they would have to respond that this animal, which according to our tradition was something holy to these neighbors, was going to be slaughtered in a couple of days. This was therefore an enormous challenge of faith that the Israelites were expected to overcome on their way to becoming the Jewish nation. 

Personally, it took me many years to overcome my self consciousness about publicly displaying my Judaism. Whether it was being accosted walking to synagogue in New England or enduring catcalls in Flatbush, I ended up needing to live a long time in areas where I could be completely comfortable with my religion before I could emerge from the mindset of my youth. 

Passover is the specific event in our calendar dedicated to developing pride in our heritage which was a process that began with that generation which was willing to throw caution to the wind!
