Judaism is deeply connected to the themes of slavery and freedom. The enslavement of Jews during biblical times—and their subsequent exodus—are a central narrative not only for Jewish people, but for others who have found hope in the biblical story.
That’s why FTS has teamed-up with Jewish educators in the creation of engaging materials to bring the cause of modern slavery to your home, synagogue, school and Seder. The 2016 editions are now live on our Faith in Action webpage.
The handouts include specific ideas inspiring conversation and tzedakah (charity) during Passover and beyond. They also include a detailed curriculum for teaching about modern slavery from a Jewish perspective.
They’re all free and available for everyone to use and share.
Our thanks to Rabbi Debra Orenstein, Rabbi Erin Hirsh and other outstanding Jewish educators for creating these impressive anti-slavery resources!
