Submissions for Haggadah: Telling Your Story


Be a part of the historical record as we live through a major historical event. This project records our experiences and actions and is a Haggadah of our time.

Haggadah loosely translates to TELLING. Tell us your story. 

The bonds which connect us as a society are changing, but our Jewish values provide a framework for us to persevere.

Some specific questions which you can answer - you can respond to one or more or something similar that is important to you:

  1. What changes have you made in your everyday life?
  2. How are you staying connected with friends and family?
  3. What mitzvahs have you witnessed during this time?
  4. How are you handling the need to stay home, maintain social distancing, and other restrictions in daily life?
  5. You should feel free to add anything else of significance related to you, your family, your community or your livelihood to preserve this historic time for our future generations.

Some specific questions for Students and Educators to consider answering:

  1. Are you a Bat or Bar Mitzvah student? How has your learning and plans been changed? 
  2. Students: How has the interruption of your education affected you at this time? With your goals? Plans for the summer? Testing?
  3. Educators: How has the interruptions to your curriculum and routine affected your teaching? Connection with Students and fellow faculty? Evaluations?
