My Favorite Tip

We often have a number of little ones, so lots of courses with many plate changes would not be a good decision.

Seder Plate - mini- versionInstead, as we describe in “Celebrate Passover: How to Plan a Fun, Simple Seder,” we prepare mini-Seder plates for every guest, including bits of all the ceremonial foods, as well as some nourishment to help us all get through the first part of the Seder.

If your kids are old enough, they can build the mini-Seder plates – because doing that is a perfect learning tool. Why are we adding parsley? Haroset? Maror? And what are these strange-sounding words?


Next year in Jerusalem – and at your Seder

I love the advice from Rabbi Adar — to help you let the perfectionism go:

The purpose of the seder is to tell the story of freedom in a way that will make it a part of everyone around the table.  It is a shared experience that will build memories for the group at the table.  Have fun with it.  Some of the best seders I’ve been to involved spilled wine, crumbs everywhere, a burnt side dish, and a lot of laughter . . . Every year at the close of the evening, we remind ourselves that Passover will come again next year.”
