Tzedek's Pesach Stories of Freedom

As we retell our own story to freedom at Pesach, Tzedek is inviting you to represent journeys out of extreme poverty, to freedom, with our Seder table token. By buying a Seder table token you are donating to Tzedek and giving a voice to members of our global community.

Each of our items represent an area of work we focus to ensure the greatest amount of impact and empowerment: education, skills training and micro-credit.
