Passover Resources

A haggadah16Safe Exodus?

We’re asked during our Passover Seder to remember that we were slaves in Egypt. As a people we embarked on a long and dangerous Exodus to safety and freedom. This Pesach we ask you to think about all those who today must embark on their own personal exodus to escape persecution and conflict. Include this one page supplement in your Seder to find out and discuss how safe the Exodus really was and what do the journeys of today’s refugees look like?

Download it from JCORE’s website.

Keykeyfreedom For Freedom

This Pesach we ask you to put a key on your Seder plate and explain to people why you are doing this. Get involved and take a small step to help raise awareness of the plight of all those in indefinite detention and tell people around your Passover table that it is time for a time limit.
