SEND US A PICTURE OF AN OLIVE ON YOUR SEDER PLATE

As Grace Paley described her family’s seder, she described “Haggadah makers” as “story tellers, who love history and tradition enough to live in it and therefore by definition be part of its change.”

During Passover, families, friends, and communities come together to read the Haggadah – the story of Exodus. There are infinite interpretations, but we want to lift up those that push us to imagine, commemorate, and recommit to every step of every journey to freedom. For ourselves, and for all people.

This Passover, include an olive on your seder plate as a symbol of the self-determination of the Palestinian people and an invitation to Jewish communities to become allies to Palestinian liberation struggles.

Send a picture of the olive on your seder plate below and help us lift up memory, hope, and justice this Passover.

Booking.com: Tell the Truth

Days ago, Booking.com bowed to pro-Israel activists and started describing all of Jerusalem as a “city in Israel” – literally erasing Palestinian East Jerusalem. Let’s get Booking.com to tell the truth: East Jerusalem is occupied territory.

End the Deadly Exchange

When US law enforcement trade tactics with the Israeli police and military, Israel deepens its military occupation and the US heightens its violence of policing.

Write to dareen tatour

Just weeks ago Dareen Tatour, a young Palestinian, walked through the gates of the prison where she’ll spend the next five months – for writing a poem. This absurd criminalization of her poetry could not be a clearer demonstration of the repression Palestinian cultural voices face.

Senators: Investigate Israeli Violence!

No one should be killed for taking part in a peaceful protest. It’s up to us to call on progressive Senators to investigate Israel’s massacre in Gaza that killed over 100 Palestinians wounded 12,000 others.
