A Fifth Question

By Leonard Fein

Moment Magazine, April 1985

At the Passover Seder, Jews across the world utter the phrase, "Let all who are hungry come and eat." This year, Leonard Fein adds a fifth question to the traditional four: Can Jews translate this ritual into reality? Hunger is a world problem, and the ethical exhortation of the Seder compels American Jews to real and concrete action to battle the scourge of hunger. Fein proposes a 3% surcharge to all Jewish celebrations, earmarked for a global fund for battling hunger. Where governments have failed, it is time for a new tradition, for American Jewry to be able to say they have found a new way to invite all who are hungry to come and eat.
