Celebrate an Earth Day Passover

by jgilad

Passover is just around the corner! This year, Passover falls on Earth Day and also at the same time that the U.S. will sign a historic greenhouse gas emissions reductions agreement. As a celebration of Passover and our Jewish environmental values, the Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life has created an Earth Justice Haggadah in collaboration with Interfaith Power and Light (DC.MD.NoVA) and the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism. As our interfaith counterparts celebrate Earth Day in churches, mosques, and other houses of worship around the world, the Jewish community can join in by considering the earth and climate change during our Passover Seder. The Haggadah can be used in full or as an insert for the four glasses of wine, the four children, or any other Seder component. You can check out the Haggadah here!
