Who’s excited about Passover? I know I am!
Passover is a Jewish holiday about the liberation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt. It is a celebration of dignity, hope, and freedom. Prayers said on Passover call on us to be kind to those who are now oppressed and to deepen our commitment to liberty today. Animals on factory farms are oppressed and denied their freedom, so this is a good time to make a commitment to helping them win it by going vegan. My favorite vegan Passover recipe—Sweet Potato Kugel—is a delicious way to get started!
