LUNAR Season 1, Ep 6
(12 min) Tea eggs on a seder plate and matzo ball ramen? In this video, Asian American Jews discuss how we would design our dream Asian Jewish Passover together, weaving in familiar family rituals and new traditions that create meaning for each of us. To wrap up the series, our team reflects on how working on LUNAR has impacted our own liberation in terms of our Asian Jewish identities.
LUNAR: The Jewish Asian Film Project showcases and celebrates the stories of Asian American Jews, through our upcoming video series, interviews, community events, and more! We’re funded by the Jews of Color Initiative and partnered with Be’chol Lashon to bring you meaningful and engaging content. We facilitate nuanced, honest conversations about identity, covering themes such as media representation, the model minority myth, racism, antisemitism, belonging and inclusion in Jewish spaces, family, culture, and fusion food.
The LUNAR Collective cultivates connection, belonging, and visibility for Asian American Jews through intersectional community programming and authentic media storytelling.
What does your Passover sedar look like? Are there any additions to the sedar that feel specific to your family traditions?
