Creating a Sustainable and Joyous Passover

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

During Passover we are commanded to eat differently as a constant reminder of the hardships of our ancestors. In this session, we’ll look at how some of our choices for celebration affect others. We’ll harken back to the agricultural origins of the holiday and discuss ways to recognize and support the freedom for all in our own celebrations and homes. Integrating both the ritual and menu of the Passover seder, we’ll touch on sustainable living, farmworkers, modern-day plagues and slavery, and issues of equal rights.
