May Day is International Worker’s Day and probably the greatest holiday of all time. As has been previously been written on Lilith.org, it should also be considered a Jewish holiday. And what is a Jewish holiday without rituals to observe?

Here are 7 Extremely Jewish Feminist ways to celebrate the first of May.

1) Don’t work. It’s a chag. It’s yontiff! Join the general strike. But if the men are not doing as much labor as everyone else to prepare for the holiday, shun them all.

2) Talk your synagogue into flying a red flag. Take a picture. Tweet it at us. I know one of you can do it.

3) Publicly call out the shondas fur di goyim. The list of contenders right now is really long, so be discerning and don’t just go for the obvious choices like Ivanka and Sheldon!
