Two Haggadot for Social Justice

Rabbi Noam Raucher shares these Passover Haggadot from the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society and American World Jewish Service

Include Refugee Stories In Your Passover Seder

“Throughout our history, violence and persecution have driven the Jewish people to wander in search of a safe place to call home. We are a refugee people. At the Passover Seder, we gather to retell the story of our original wandering and the freedom we found.”


Next Year in a Just World

“As we turn the pages of the Haggadah, we are transported backwards in time to witness our people’s exodus from Egypt and their long walk toward freedom. The text prompts us to internalize this journey—to go beyond empathy with our ancestors’ suffering and imagine that we ourselves are experiencing the shackles of slavery and the profound release of freedom.”
