'Let all who are hungry come and eat' An accompaniment for your seder
Rabbi Helen Freeman and Libby Burkeman: "Over the last few months the Movement for Reform Judaism and the Assembly of Rabbis has set up a working group to ensure that we as a Movement are doing quality social action work. This group includes RSY-Netzer, professionals and lay leaders from across the community.
"After a thorough process this group have decided that the Movement for Reform Judaism social action project for the year will be on refugees. This will include learning about the topic, from a Jewish and general point of view as well as practical actions to really make a difference.
"Pesach is a great opportunity for us to relate to a time when the Jewish people were essentially refugees, forced to leave their homes for an unknown future. Several rabbis have written pieces linking the Haggadah to the plight of refugees today – please do use this booklet at your seder night and communal sedarim. We hope it makes the whole experience even more special and meaningful and look forward to receiving your feedback."
