Rene Cassin, a charity working to promote and protect universal human rights, organised an International Women’s Day Seder, and we were there!
It was a powerful evening, built around female-led change, exploring the Passover story and how this relates to human rights today.
Rabbi Deborah Kahn-Harris, who led the event, focused extensively on female prophets and figures within the Jewish tradition, which are often overlooked or not fully appreciated. They were presented to us as an example of the great contributions of women in the past, and as a symbol of how relevant it is to keep fighting for equal gender representation in the modern times.
Our co-founders, Julie and Laura, were two of the speakers. They introduced Nisa-Nashim and discussed what inspires them in working side by side everyday, as friends and partners who try to spread religious harmony, solidarity and positive change.
