Seder PlateWe’re hosting a small Passover seder at 625 Elm Street tonight for a few family and friends. It has become an annual tradition at our house, to the point where my family members ask about it every spring. We keep it pretty low-key and informal—we use our own homemade haggadah, for example—mainly because in any given year there are only 1 or 2 Jews at the table. We have a good time and enjoy the food. (Except for the maror. Ick.)

As I mentioned, we use our own haggadah. We keep things pretty short, but we don’t keep them this short! (Click on the intro page to start the animation. There is sound, so have your speakers ready.)

If you have never attended a seder, it’s worth trying sometime. If nothing else, go for the matzo ball soup and wine. There are always community seders which non-Jewish guests are welcome (and encouraged) to attend.
