The symbolism of what we eat on Passover tells a story, so we want to be sure that each component of our seders represent our values. This year, as you build your seder plate, consider the egg.
Did you know that the vast majority of eggs produced in America come from chickens living in crowded cages on factory farms? It only makes sense to celebrate the feast of freedom without eggs from caged hens. Join us in saying that everyone deserves to be free, including laying hens! This Passover, we can say let our chickens go!
Consider the egg on Passover. What does it mean today, and where should our Passover eggs come from? Click to download the haggadah supplement we created with our partners at Hazon to share with friends and family at the seder table this year! Then, take the higher welfare egg commitment, either for your family or your Jewish institution.
Visit BuyingPoultry.com to be sure the eggs you buy for the festival of freedom are from chickens who don’t spend their lives in cages. BuyingPoultry is a free, independent buying guide that cuts through confusing labels and marketing claims and makes it easy to find the highest-welfare products near you.
Aren’t satisfied with the welfare of eggs in your area or just want to use fewer animal products? Consider using an avocado, an eggplant, or a wooden egg as a fun way to make sure your seder is cruelty-free!
