Creating Lively Passover Seders

Author : David Arnow

It is very rare that a book as innovative and useful as this has been so widely endorsed. Anyone who wants to have a Seder that will keep people awake not only awake, but really interested, should try this book. All you need is one chapter a year. That´s plenty. The blurbs say it all. ´´David Arnow has written the afikomen of Seder books: An ingenious synthesis of history, legend, law, and spirituality (un)leavened with practically helpful, politically important, and psychologically sophisticated suggestions on how to transform your meal into a true celebration of asking and learning. This book belongs next to every seder plate.´´ -Rabbi Lawrence Kushner, Emanu-El Scholar at Congregation Emanu-El, San Francisco; author, The Way Into Jewish Mystical Tradition ´´A deeply enriched and enriching Seder awaits those who use [this] comprehensive sourcebook. [Its] chapter on women of the Exodus is alone worth the cover price.´´ -Letty Cottin Pogrebin, author, Deborah, Golda, and Me: Being Female and Jewish in America ´´What is most enjoyable is the connection between the ancient and the contemporary, the timely and timeless quality of our eternal texts which David Arnow has masterfully managed to bring to our attention. Will serve as a marvelous companion piece to the Passover Haggadah and can be referred to year after year.´´ -Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, chancellor, Ohr Torah Stone Institutions of Israel ´´This richly informative and inspiring book is a treasure for all those seeking to create a Seder that is alive with questions that matter.´´ -Rabbi Sharon Cohen Anisfeld, coeditor, The Women´s Passover Companion ´´A wonderful collection of readings, stories, and activities to enhance your Passover celebration.´´ -Dr. Ron Wolfson, vice president, University of Judaism; author, Passover: The Family Guide to Spiritual Celebration ´´A treasure trove of lore and scholarship, insight and activities that will fascinate and enlighten readers and enrich their Seders for decades. An extraordinary array of strategies for reaching the diverse groups who gather to share the Seder experience.´´ -Rabbi David A. Teutsch, past president, Reconstructionist Rabbinical College ´´A welcome support for Seder leaders everywhere. As Jewish life continues to evolve, the Seder remains a pivotal moment to transmit values, stories, and the culture of our people. This book is full of ideas, texts, and information on how to enrich the experience for all gathered at the table!´´ -Rabbi Geela Rayzel Raphael, rabbinic director, Jewish Women´s Spirituality Institute, JCCs of Greater Philadelphia ´´The book everyone who has to lead or attend a Seder has been waiting for.
