FOUR QUESTIONS… 

 

A Passover Seder is a service held at home

as part of the Passover celebration of liberation,

to share the Passover story together in order

to recognize peoples’ right to freedom.

 

During the evening, as part of the Passover

Seder, four questions are asked, traditionally

by the youngest child, to teach the next

generation to question as a way to learn.

 

The idea of Passover is also about becoming

free personally from our internal

constraints. Asking questions makes manifest

that quest and shows our courage to exercise

our freedom.

 

On Passover we learn that when people

without their freedom question authority, they

are at great risk.

 

It is therefore essential for those with privilege

to question, to wonder aloud. We ask these

four questions on behalf of people in struggle

for their liberation and right to freedom.

How can a Jewish State be a democracy?

 

*

 

Can the Jewish people know true liberation while a “Jewish” state deprives the Palestinian people of their freedom?

 

*

 

How can we pass over the occupation of Palestine while we tell the story of the liberation of the Jewish people?

 

*

 

When you say “next year in Jerusalem” who is it that you imagine has a right to return?

WE WILL NOT BE SILENT is an artist/activist collective that has been in existence

since 2006. Through the creative use of

language embodied on shirts and at times emboldened on signs held up in public spaces,

we respond to current social justice issues, encouraging creative, direct public-actions

where many people can participate.
