Passover is Judaism’s most important holiday, says Rabbi Elyse Frishman, because it tells the master story. Passover, which commemorates the Jewish people's escape from slavery in Egypt, underscores a Jewish identity as servants of God. “And from there, God then gave us the Torah, our core teaching which gave us all of the guidelines that we needed to create a civilization based on social justice,” Frishman said. “So we are a people at the heart of which is both a sense of faith and a sense of social justice.”
