HMI-Created Passover Resources
Passover and Easter are two of the most important holidays in Jewish and Christian faiths. While there are certainly differences, there are also major similarities. This resource was created with interfaith couples in mind, but is a great primer for everyone. It’s a super digestible, fun, one-stop-shop to learn everything you want to know about why these holidays are side-by-side in the calendar year, what sets them apart, and what brings them together.
During a typical Seder meal, there comes a time when guests discuss the 4-children – who they are and what they represent. This document will help you re-imagine that Passover ritual by explaining the history behind and the power of why asking questions is at the heart of the Passover experience (and at the heart of Judaism in general!).
Have you ever wondered how you, as someone who most likely experiences many freedoms in your life, can relate most to the Passover story of oppression and liberation? One of the many teachings in Passover is that we all have the power to create change in our world in big or small ways. Sometimes it helps to make a plan to do just that. This check-in is a chance for you, your partner, and your family to ‘check-in’ about how you personally want to repair the world this coming year. What matters to you? What do you want to commit to?
The one thing we didn’t make for you is a Haggadah (the book that guides a Seder meal). That’s because there are SO many out there that are fantastic. We did a little crowd-sourcing amongst our team and HMI’s rabbis/educators and pulled together our faves. This document lists them and provides you the direct links to make it super easy. Do you have a favorite one that’s missing from this list? We’d love to hear – email firstname.lastname@example.org!
