The key symbol of Passover is the bread of oppression that is broken and one half is hidden as the afikomen. The hidden piece can be seen as the elusive answers to the perplexing state of Israel and Palestine. The story of Passover also teaches that all peoples' struggles for liberation are intertwined. By supporting one another's struggles for liberation, we liberate ourselves. As Israelis and Palestinians, breaking the bread of oppression TOGETHER can liberate the dove of peace.
