The Egg on the Seder Plate

By Jewish Initiative for Animals & Hazon

Why is there an egg on the Seder plate, and what does the egg mean today? Just as the egg can symbolize both mourning and renewal, the eggs we choose to put on our table today can reflect either care for living creatures or one of the plagues of our time: factory farming. Jewish Initiative for Animals collaborated with Hazon to bring you this haggadah supplement which provides both Jewish learning and practical tips for making sure your plate promotes Jewish values of compassion—on Passover, and year-round!
