Dear Friend,

This is just a reminder that we are here for you as you clean and cook  and manage the issues that interfaith families face when Passover and Easter are right next to each other. Don't forget our Passover and Easter Resource Page! If you are looking for a seder, you can check our Passover Events page for a community seder. Or, you can search our Network for a local synagogue. Whatever you do, we hope you have a great time with your family! And if we have helped you this season, we'd be very grateful if you would help us -- we depend on charitable contributions to make our work possible, and thanks to a generous matching challenge grant, every new gift (to a total of $36,000) will be matched ­ doubling the value of your donation.

Reform synagogues are often called "temple." Hebrew for "telling," the text that outlines the order of the Passover seder. There are many, many versions of this book, which dates back almost 2,000 years. Because we are commanded to expand upon the story, the Haggadah contains ancient interpretations, as well as stage directions and explanations, for the Passover meal. A language of West Semitic origins, culturally considered to be the language of the Jewish people. Ancient or Classical Hebrew is the language of Jewish prayer or study.
