Feminist humanist modern version Haggadah for Passover

It’s that time of year again when the Passover page on my Web site starts attracting lots of visitors. A few years ago I compiled a feminist humanist modern version Haggadah for Passover as the traditional ones I could find did not meet my needs. I would have preferred to just grab one from a Web site, but none provided the type I was seeking. Once compiled, I figured others may find it helpful as well so I decided to post it. Feel free to grab a copy if it is of interest. It contains no references to a higher power, it includes an orange on the Seder plate, it is inclusive in language to both Jews and non-Jews and it refers to contemporary plagues such as hunger, war and racism. It is certainly not meant to offend. It is meant to offer people an alternative that better aligns with their beliefs and concerns about the world. (The Web page does not contain a Creative Commons license because I myself grabbed most of the material from elsewhere so it’s not really up to me to make a decision on that. I credit the sources on the document and include links to their Web sites. )

    Excellent resource, Eszter. I’m honored to meet you. Your website has enabled me to finess a complex mixed-religion seder table with smiles and grace. It’s a major relief!
    Many thanks,
    English Secular Reasonably Feminist likes the old traditions not cool with vengeful God idea has a hard time peddling fairy tales to son but still wants to figure out somehow how to tell him he’s Jewish. Haven’t you heard it all before. Sigh:)

    I am so happy I stumbled upon your Haggadah. I belong to an affiliate of the Society for Humanistic Judaism, and your Haggadah is fabulous and beautiful too. Thank you so much. It will make our Seder very meaningful.
