The Five Women of the Exodus: A Feminist Supplement to the Haggadah


Despite the fact that five women are integral to the story of the Book of Exodus, not one of them is named in the traditional Passover Haggadah. National Council of Jewish Women is proud to offer a new way to honor these five heroines: Shifra, Puah, Yocheved, Batya, and Miriam, and to bring the lessons of their bravery into your celebration of Passover. As you pour each of the four cups of wine, may your recitation and remembrance of each of these women strengthen your commitment to fighting injustice today.
