The Seder Plate and Today’s Refugees
The Passover Seder plate is one of the oldest symbolic representations of the Jewish people’s historic refugee experience.
In the face of unprecedented efforts to limit refugees’ ability to seek safety in the United States – even as more people are displaced by violence and persecution than ever before – these powerful symbols of both the unimaginable suffering and the boundless resilience and hope of refugees feel particularly poignant.
