Seder supplements to make your Passover relevant this year

Posted by Rabbi Ron Symons on April 5, 2017

What I love about the seder is that the ritual that began the night before we left Egypt has been transformed thousands of times over throughout the generations.  In fact, the Passover haggadah is said to be the most published Jewish book in history with editions that meet the needs of assorted Jews throughout history.  Just look at how many Maxwell haggadot are featured in the above picture!

This generation is no different…. except for the technology.  Instead of publishing a totally new haggadah, Jewish organizations are now electronically publishing haggadah supplements that are free to download and free of wine stains from years of use.

Just pick your social justice passion:

  • Global Justice
  • Refugees
  • Zookeeper’s Wife
  • Holocaust Hero
  • The list is long…

…and have at it.

This article from e-Jewish Philanthropy has links to 9 supplements.

No matter how you celebrate Passover, please just remember that the ancient wisdom “this year we are slaves, next year we will be free” is a mandate to hope for and work for a better tomorrow.  Passover can be your motivation.
