Brand new color haggadah from HIAS that allows for a deeper exploration of the connection between the Passover story and today's global refugee crisis? Check.

This year, as the Passover holiday nears, HIAS is pleased to provide a haggadah with a modern take on the traditional Seder, full of personal stories of refugees and asylum seekers and inspirational readings. The retelling of the Exodus from Egypt is the Jewish people’s original refugee story, and this haggadah urges readers to think of those still in need of protection: the more than 68 million displaced people around the world today.

Throughout the haggadah there are different ways for participants to feel the connection between past and present as well as discussion topics and challenges posed to the group and the individual. In one section the four children are reinterpreted as different types of people and their reactions (or lack thereof) to the refugee crisis.

The final part of the HIAS Haggadah includes a new fifth cup of wine, emphasizing the communal aspiration to bring change in the world.
