Seder 2016

Decolonizing Seder

This image invites us to consider Jewish people who have helped to liberate us and create a better world for generations. It includes a list generated by crowd sourcing a facebook group focused on post-colonial Jewish identity. The color and design is inspired by the oldest known Sephardic Haggadah, the Sarajevo Haggadah (1350 CE).

Can you name that Jew? Play with your friends and family this seder! A complete list lies at the end of this post. Do you have a suggestion for you should be included next year? Leave it in the comments!
