The Jewish Labor Committee is holding three Passover seders bringing together leaders of the labor movement with local Jewish leaders. The seders in Philadelphia, New Jersey and Seattle use traditional Haggadahs with added quotes from Jewish labor leaders. The seders draw a parallel between the Jews’ Exodus and contemporary union battles. “You have everything from oppressive taskmasters to impossible work quotas,” said Avram Lyon, the executive director of the group.
