Going From Egypt, Hoping for Elijah's Coming

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2011

Passover is a holiday where hope and history rhyme. As to the history, it is of that distinctive type that is both personal and communal: The Passover story tells us to see ourselves as if we personally had been redeemed from slavery. And to the hope, it is the hope of what is to come, the hope we express when we sing, with longing, of Elijah's coming, when we open the door that he may enter, the harbinger of the messiah.
