Passover Seders and Candle-lighting

Passover Haggadah Supplement

Host or attend a Passover Seder with the theme of liberation, social justice, and reflection on Palestine and the 60 years since the Nakba.

Download a copy of the No Time to Celebrate haggadah supplement with suggested additional readings for your seder!  Note: this is not meant to be a complete haggadah, but rather additional readings and activities to be used alongside other haggadot.  If you are looking for a complete seder, download the 2008 International Jewish Solidarity Network’s Liberation Seder haggadah, which incorporates these supplemental materials into a complete liberation haggadah.

Liberation Candle-lighting

Commemorate the Nakba and honor Palestinian resistance with a silent action in a strategic location, using candles, signs, stickers, flyers or banners. Think about what would make this action visually powerful.

  • Cheap candles can be ordered here

Consider putting stickers on candles that convey our message. Or create candles that commemorate different Nakba dates or destroyed Palestinian villages.

View a map of depopulated Palestinian villages, or type a date (e.g., “May 1, 1948”) in the Search page and see a list of the villages occupied on that day.

For example:

Palestinian village, destroyed April 25, 1948
Population 1948: 7,807
Population 1998: 47,942
