Holiday Companion Series: An Interactive Seder Experience – Expanded Edition

Sponsored by Paz and Rick Goldberg in honor of the scholarship and teaching of Rabbi Alex Israel

Pesach is known as the time of ‘our freedom’ – zman heruteinu. It is the holiday commemorating our leaving the bonds of Egyptian slavery to become a free nation following the Divine Will. However, this year, this message comes at a time when, for many, our physical freedoms have been limited, our emotional energy depleted, and our spiritual vigor challenged.

Seder night throughout the generations, no matter what the situation, was the time where Jews came together, as family, friends, and guests to retell, relive, and re-enact the eternal freedom given to us. No matter the circumstances, when we focus on our Jewish freedom story – we too become free. Even if we feel like slaves to our home (or in our home), to our children, technology, social media, our work, or Covid-19 – on Pesach night we are free!

The Pardes Center for Jewish Educators, which trains and empowers Jewish studies teachers and experiential Jewish educators to serve as knowledgeable, skilled, reflective and passionate professionals, was delighted to call upon our faculty and alumni to contribute to this updated collection. From our family to yours, stay healthy, stay well, and stay free – חג שמח!

You can download and print the companion in full color or black and white, suitable for A4 paper or US Letter.
