Tradition and new rituals merge in an exceptional Haggadah that includes the voices and experiences of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered (GLBT) Jews. Developed by JQ International, a group of GLBT Jews in their twenties and thirties, in collaboration with Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion's Institute for Judaism & Sexual Orientation (IJSO), the GLBT Haggadah is a completely traditional Haggadah infused and integrated through the lens of GLBT and feminist culture.
This fully integrated GLBT Haggadah aims to speak to a current generation of GLBT Jews, their families and friends, and all those committed to freedom and liberation
Each year at Passover, Jews around the world retell the Jews' exodus from Egypt. The GLBT Haggadah includes new versions of the four children, new plagues, and a fifth question to join the traditional four.
The new JQ GLBT Passover Haggadah is available for Passover 2008 - and a PDF version is available at www.huc.edu/ijso. The Haggadah will be featured at the University of Southern California Hillel's seder, led by HUC-JIR rabbinical student Daniel Mikelberg.
