AIPAC Haggadah Supplement

In this year’s AIPAC Haggadah Supplement, which you can download from the link, AIPAC shares a collection of moving stories of Jews and non-Jews, who, through their words and actions, teach us what it means for the Jewish people to have a safe and secure home in the Land of Israel. 

Through their stories, perhaps your own Seder table guests will be inspired to share their stories of connection to the people of Israel … to the miraculous reality that is Israel today…and the actions you and they take to ensure we will always be able to celebrate the dream “Next Year in Jerusalem.”
