Each year, MAZON publishes a Hunger Lit. Order. The festive meal conducted on Passover night, in a specific order with specific rituals to symbolize aspects of the Exodus from Egypt. It is conducted following the haggadah, a book for this purpose. The mystics of Sefat also created a seder for Tu B'shvat, the new year of the trees. Lit. "Telling.” The haggadah is the book used at the seder table on Passover to tell the story of the Exodus, the central commandment of the holiday. It is rich in song, prayer, and legend. There are many different version of the Haggadah produced throughout Jewish history. to highlight a specific aspect of anti-hunger work and spark important conversations around the seder table. This year, we turn our attention to currently serving military families and veterans experiencing food insecurity. Across the country, currently serving members of our armed forces and veterans regularly turn to food pantries and distribution programs, sometimes in uniform, looking for help to feed themselves and their families. Share this haggadah with your family and friends to learn more about hunger among military families and veterans. Join MAZON in raising awareness and calling on our public officials to address this long-ignored and unacceptable problem. Learn more at www.mazon.org.
MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger is a national organization that believes we can end hunger in the United States and Lit. ''the one who struggles with God.'' Israel means many things. It is first used with reference to Jacob, whose name is changed to Israel (Genesis 32:29), the one who struggles with God. Jacob's children, the Jewish people, become B'nai Israel, the children of Israel. The name also refers to the land of Israel and the State of Israel.. MAZON’s advocacy works to ensure that hungry people have access to nutritious food today and demands that government policies assure no one goes hungry tomorrow.
