Passover is just around the corner and The Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life is proud to introduce this Earth Justice Haggadah.
This Haggadah is a collaboration of the Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life (COEJL), the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism (RAC), and Interfaith Power & Light (DC.MD.NoVA). This April, Pesach coincides with Earth Day and the signing of the Paris Agreement. We commemorate both the sweetness and bitterness of the Passover Holiday and of Earth Day in a new light. We look forward to sharing in this worldwide celebration of the earth as the sun sets on the 15th of Nisan, 5776.
We invite you to use this Haggadah companion to remind ourselves how Jewish tradition teaches us to care for all living things of the earth and all of our neighbors. You are free to use this adapted service either as a companion to your favorite Haggadah or as an independent Haggadah. We chose to focus on the frame of climate change and the celebration of our earth, as it relates to the agricultural celebration of Pesach. We recognize that there are missing pieces like Miriam’s Cup, and other modern adaptations of the Passover seder. We welcome you to add in or substitute any of the pieces included here, and hope that you may make the seder your own.
