Each year at our Seder tables, telling the story of our ancestors’ journey from slavery to freedom illuminates the core narrative of the Jewish people. But it also offers thematic resonance with the stories and struggles of other oppressed communities around the globe.
This year, when we relive the story of our own liberation, we can also think of the millions of people around the world, including women, girls and LGBT people, who are still enslaved to poverty, violence, discrimination, and many other afflictions. We can challenge ourselves to take a more active and more meaningful role in hastening their freedom.
We invite you to use the following resources to enrich your celebration of Passover. Bring them to your Seders. Share them with your friends and families. Post and tweet them to your networks.
Passover 2017 / 5777 begins at sundown on Monday, April 10, 2017 and ends the evening of Tuesday, April 18, 2017.
