#MyKeshetSeder

Haggadah Section: Introduction
LGBTQSeder Plate

As LGBTQ+ Jews and allies, each of us is unique.

This year, Keshet staff and board chose food and objects for an additional Seder plate to represent our communities.

Download our plate, add your own food/object to the middle, share it with us using #MyKeshetSeder, and tell us what it means to you!

About our plate:

“Rhubarb’s bright pink stalks are unapologetic and eye-catching, with a sour-sweet flavor that’s not for everyone. As a femme, queer woman, I want to channel that same unapologetic energy in the bright and colorful ways I express myself and embrace the unique flavor I bring.”

Talia Makowsky (she/her)
Keshet Communications Manager, Baltimore, MD

 “Rambutans have a spiky, threatening exterior that belies a sweet, tender interior, reminding me of the simultaneous resilience and tenderness within communities of queer and trans Jewish youth of color.”

Is Perlman (they/them)
Keshet Youth Engagement Intern, New York, NY

 “Growing up in Southern Indiana, my hometown hosted an annual apple butter festival. It brings back memories of home, and the sweet and spice of trans Jews in the Midwest.”

Issac Young (he/him)
Keshet Midwest Youth Engagement Manager, Chicago, IL

“I chose vegan collard greens to represent queer, Black Jews. Collard greens have been a source of sustenance for Black Americans in the South, both during and after enslavement, and remain a staple of soul food to this very day.”

Chaim Ezra Harrison (he/him)
Keshet Communications Manager, Detroit, MI

“I chose a starfruit to represent the unique and energizing community of Jews in Florida who are taking action against oppressive anti-LGBTQ+ legislation.”

Jon Cohen (he/him)
Keshet Director of Community Mobilization, Miami, FL

“Every opal is unique and within the stone is a rainbow of colors. To me, this symbolizes the brilliant, beautiful, and resilient people within our LGBTQ+ communities everywhere.”

Davia Loren (she/her)
Keshet Board Member, Seattle, WA

“16th Century Kabbalist Moshe Cordovero compared the universe to a mustard seed. May the bitter spiciness of deli mustard remind us as trans Jews that in our communal grief there is also life.”

Jay Smith (they/them)
Keshet Chief Communications Officer, Northampton, MA
