Rabbi Jill Jacobs has led and participated in countless seders. Here, she toasts a first-timer, Santiago Perez, at the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s second annual Food and Justice Passover Seder on April 4.

Ordained by the Conservative movement’s Jewish Theological Seminary, Rabbi Jacobs is the director of Rabbis for Human Rights – North America and has helped to spread awareness about workers in Immokalee, Fla., who pick tomatoes for what activists say are unfair wages and in unsafe conditions. A tomato held pride of place on the seder plate that night.
