Whether you live for matzah or it's not your cup of Manischewitz ...

Passover is about more than just the food. It is a generational story about justice, freedom and redemption. It teaches us about connecting with our tradition and values, about standing up for the oppressed, about leadership and about journeying to our homeland.

This year, after you finish asking the four questions at your seder table, we invite you to ask a fifth question:

How will you draw on the themes of Passover this year to help create a more just and equitable world?

Use these Haggadot and other resources we curated to inspire discussion at your seder table.

​Social Justice:

  • Social JusticeGlobal Justice Haggadah: The story of Passover brings up themes that still resonate today. This Haggadah from AJWS addresses important issues such as the refugee crises and genocide, global hunger, poverty, violence against women and LGBT people and the persecution of minorities.
