Seder Supplements All Around

I’m not dreading the seders this year quite as much as I usually do, though I’m confident they’ll still be plenty dramatic. But I do have a few tricks up my sleeve that might make things more fun/relevant/interesting/intoxicating than usual. Allow me to recommend:



National Council on Jewish Women has a reading for the Yahatz part of the seder about our broken immigration system in America

Uri L’Tzedek has a haggadah supplement about food and justice

J Street has a supplement to share thoughts and questions about peace, freedom, Israel, and the future of our community.

Some ideas for adding drama (like, actual skits, not just people shouting at each other)

Funny songs to sing at your seder to the melody of classic songs we all know

Hillel offers up a plethora of supplements for everything from modern slavery, to feminism to the righteous gentiles

The Huffington Post offers up something that, frankly, could have used an editor
