New Pesach Resource: Reproductive Justice Haggadah Insert
The themes of Passover have broad resonance with many of the most critical social justice causes of the day: reading about Israelite slavery reminds us of those who are not free today, focusing on our food calls our attention to those who are hungry and hearing about forced labor in Egypt brings our attention to contemporary labor issues.
This year, in addition to focusing on all of these crucial topics, we also think about the ways in which our freedom as women is not yet fully realized. Through a new haggadah insert coordinated by the RAC in conjunction with other leading Jewish and reproductive rights organizations, we can further connect some of the seder’s rituals with important reproductive justice topics.
CLICK HERE to download this great resource, and infuse your seder with moving stories, insightful analyses and inspirational calls to action. Help us work toward and truly achieve the justice and freedom that we all celebrate this Pesach.
