Passover 5784/2024: Exodus from Zionism.

haggadah Passover 5784

This year, as we gather for Passover, we hold both grief and resolve deep in our hearts. We know that this year is unlike any other year. The Israeli government continues its genocide of Palestinians in Gaza in full force. We cannot feast while there is famine.

Holding the lessons of Passover close, that all deserve to be free from bondage, and that we must struggle together against oppressive Pharaohs towards a place of collective liberation, JVP has compiled these offerings so we may continue the sacred work of mobilizing to end genocide and apartheid — and of building an expansive practice of Judaism beyond Zionism.

JVP Haggadah 5784/2024: Exodus From Zionism

We are wrestling back our beloved, thousands-year-old traditions from a 76-year-old apartheid state, and re-rooting in the values passed to us.
