There are a few thousand different Haggadot in the world — so why reinvent the wheel? Because every year our table changes: we welcome new people; we age and grow; we reflect differently upon the world around us and the resonances of the Passover story for the changing landscape in the news at home and abroad. How do you host an engaging Seder that meets your changing needs? This interactive workshop will address strategies to engage children and to lead a more meaningful discussion with the teens and adults at your table. We’ll also look at recent Haggadot featuring art and literature on Seder themes and briefly show you how to update your own Haggadah with tools like Haggadot.com.
