Passover and Palestine: Collective Liberation Movements

Sunday, April 10, 2022, 3-4:30 PM

The Tikkun Olam Chavurah, Jewish Voice for Peace Philadelphia, and Christian Jewish Allies for Justice in Israel/Palestine are hosting a Zoom Seder. Learn and talk and sing together:

  • Hear Stefanie Fox, executive director of Jewish Voice for Peace, on the success and future work needed on the Deadly Exchange campaign.
  • Learn from Hamed Qawasmeh of HIRN, the Hebron International Reource Network, as he Zooms in from Palestine to update us on work that is happening now.
  • Focus on Amnesty International's report on Israel as an apartheid state.
  • Learn about how Palestine and challenges to free speech have intersected locally

To join the Seder, you are welcome to just open the Zoom link and be present or find ways to bring the Seder to life for yourself. Find a comfortable place to sit and have ritual foods for the Seder. To prepare, you can have:

  • water for Four Cups of Water and a cup for drinking
  • a green vegetable for Karpas, parsley or anything that reminds you of spring
  • a small bowl of salt water for dipping
  • a bitter herb as Maror: horseradish or anything that tastes bitter to you
  • Matza to break and eat
  • A chopped fruit and nut mixture, Charoset: There are many recipes ranging from Ashkenazi recipes that are a mixture of apples, walnuts, honey, and sweet wine or grape juice (some with cinamon and raisins) to Sephardic/Mizrachi recipes with figs, dates, almonds, spices and sweet wine or grape juice. Feel free to find a recipe and try it (there are many online) or just bring some fruit and nuts to the seder.
  • Olives that represent Palestine

The Haggadah, the text of the Seder, will be on the screen and put in the chat so you can have it for a Seder on Passover if that would be useful.
