HIAS Haggadah


Join the Jewish response to the refugee crisis.



Explore the connections between the ancient Passover story and today's refugees

The new HIAS Haggadah offers a deeper exploration of the global refugee crisis. It can be used as a whole or each part can be used as a stand-alone addition to a family or communal Seder. The Haggadah contains material written between 2016 and 2018, as well as new material and illustrations for Passover 2019. 

Before your Seder, spend some time reading through the entire document to familiarize yourself with which piece(s) might resonate most with your guests. Consider balancing discussion, readings, and ritual.
