Why are Jewish holidays so many
days asked Agnes Wong, garment worker heroine.
She’s writing her story in my class.
Her own liberation story. From there
to here. Never one straight line.
Hard work, a happy ending. Union pension now.
Children grandchildren. One of the questions
for Agnes and the other women in the class: what matters
every day? A holiday is the same as now she said.
Maybe that’s the reason why
there are so many Passover days.
