GLBT-oriented Haggadah

Monday, March 22, 2010

In 2008, JQ International and HUC-JIR's Institute for Judaism & Sexual Orientation collaborated to develop this wonderful Seder. The goal was to create a comprehensively GLBT-oriented Haggadah and GLBT Passover experience that attempts to bridge traditional and modern, old and new, historical and contemporary. They sought to create a text that was inclusive on many levels, offering leaders a great degree of flexibility regarding the essence of their Seder.
