Ecologically Rooted Passover Haggadah


From our friend Rabbi Ellen Bernstein:


New release: An ecologically rooted Passover haggadah, The Promise of the Land.  


I’m happy to announce the release of my new ecologically rooted haggadah, The Promise of the Land.  The Promise of the Land understands that the freedom we celebrate on Passover depends on the earth’s well-being. If the earth and its systems are compromised, our freedom is compromised. Life itself is compromised.  

Now, more than ever, we need holiday celebrations to inspire and embolden us to turn our hearts, minds and efforts towards the earth and all her creatures. The Promise of the Land can be your guide.

In anticipation of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day coming this April, I am also helping to seed and support community-wide Passover Earth Seders.  To learn more, visit

 The Promise of the Land is an ideal choice for community-wide seders. It is user-friendly and accessible, and strives to reach beyond generational and political divides, while staying true to the traditional haggadah text.
