Passover: A Season for Justice

Passover, or Pesach, is a celebration of freedom and family. The seder meal and the Haggadah offer many opportunities to add social-justice themed readings, symbols of social action issues and movements, and to discuss and debate themes of the story of Exodus.

Voting rights signs at Capitol

Include readings in your Seder to hear the voices of some of those engaged in the urgent struggle for racial justice, and to facilitate conversation among friends and family about why racial justice should be an issue of tremendous importance to Reform Jews.

Refugee Crisis Haggadah Inserts

Supplement your seder with prayers that connect the refugee crisis & Passover or add a banana to your seder plate to remind us of the children caught up in a modern-day exodus.


This spring, the first night of Passover 15th of Nisan, 5776, falls on April 10, 2017. Soon after, we celebrate Earth Day and the signing of the landmark UN Paris Climate Agreement on April 22, 2017. We invite you to use this Haggadah companion to include environmental justice your Passover seder. 

These haggadot can used by families and congregations to include a unique perspective on social justice topics, including environmental, hunger, racial justice and LGBT themes, in their Passover celebrations.

Add a social justice reading insert to your seder to infuse justice into your retelling of the Passover story.
