  3. Actually the story of Passover is of people returning from a land not their own to their own original land.

  4. Dave knows what the rest of us don’t: To apply the lessons of our tradition to a contemporary event, the details must be exactly, unerringly parallel.

  5. not to mention there is no ‘original land,’ unless you mean eden… avraham avinu didn’t originate in eretz yisroel, did he?

  6. Actually, Rabbi Allen is correct. The Israelites were migrant workers who went down to Egypt for economic gain–no different than the millions of migrants who find their way to America. They were and remain the first group of migrant workers redeemed and while they choose to return to their promised land, many of today’s migrant workers will choose to stay here–if given the chance to do so openly and honestly.

"I may attack a certain point of view which I consider false, but I will never attack a person who preaches it. I have always a high regard for the individual who is honest and moral, even when I am not in agreement with him. Such a relation is in accord with the concept of kavod habriyot, for beloved is man for he is created in the image of God." —Rav Joseph Soloveitchik
