Pesach/Passover

This year, Havurah's Tikkun Olam cluster collected Passover recipes from Havurah members, linked members together for seder meals, offered haggadah recommendations and seder readings, and provided links to Passover songs. You can access their resources in this one-page document or by scrolling below.

Haggadot


Reconstructing Judaism recommends the haggadah A Night of Questions: A Passover Haggadah and the #Black Lives Matter Passover  Supplement.

A Night of Questions: A Passover Haggadah by Joy Levitt and Michael Strassfeld is a flexible haggadah, presenting outlines for 1) a seder for adults and older children, 2) a seder for families with small children, 3) a seder for those who want to emphasize the universal aspects inherent in the story of Pesach, and 4) a seder that focuses on the role of women — past, present and future — in the story of the Exodus.

Another hagaddah for families that stands out is A Different Night: The Family Participation Hagaddah by Noam Zion.

Seder Readings


Havurah's Tikkun Olam cluster collected seder readings with a social justice theme.

Recipe Collection


As part of the 2022 Passover celebration, the Tikkun Olam cluster put out a call for Passover recipes—and the Havurah community responded! The cluster collected old family favorites, new variations on an old theme, and other meaningful recipes for the season, which can enliven your seder meals for years to come.
