Rebbe Quotes: A Picture of Servitude

"What does servitude look like?
"The main idea of the Hagadah is to depict what slavery to Paroah and to ourselves is. What's the difference if the Paroah is sitting in Mitzrayim or if he’s sitting right here? (Pointing to himself.)

"Yosef told the brothers, "משמרכם" - "your jails", the jails that you have created for yourselves.

"If we don’t know how to identify what we are enslaved to, we won’t know how to administer a medicine. Part of our problem is we are trying to connect to Hashem before we’ve freed ourselves from our prisons, appetites, תאוות, obligations to our stuff. Whether its a wall or a window that is still smudged, how can we try to connect?"

Quoted from the Rebbe, shlit"a - Pesach 5758 (2008)
