If you’re planning a seder with kids, you’ve got plenty to worry about (can they really sit in their seats all night without spilling anyone’s glass of wine on the nice tablecloth?) Let us take one of those worries off your list: choosing the perfect haggadah. Thanks to CCAR Press, we’ve got three whole bundles of Passover haggadahs to give away that should please both the grape juice-drinkers and your more mature seder guests.

The bundle includes classics, such as “A Passover Haggadah” illustrated by Leonard Baskin and “A Children’s Haggadah,” as well as the new and innovative haggadah, “Sharing the Journey,” illustrated by Mark Podwal, which offers clear step-by-step explanations of the seder as well as inspiring readings and discussion starters. The bundle also includes “The New Union Haggadah,” a revised and updated edition of the classic 1923 “Union Haggadah,” which preserves the elegance of the original version while making it relevant to families today. There’s something for everyone in this bundle, whatever your seder style may be.

To enter the giveaway, fill out the form below and we’ll choose three random winners next Monday, March 10.

How to Choose Your Passover Haggadah

By at 9:57 am

It’s that time of year again. Spring is in the air, families are making their travel plans, and matzah is on sale (seriously, $4 for five boxes at my local A&P!). Passover begins on sundown, April 6th, and besides choosing the best recipe for matzah ball soup, there’s another important decision on your hands: the Haggadah. The Haggadah is a major determinate in how your seder will turn out. Long or short, funny or serious, traditional or modern–there’s a Passover Haggadah for everyone out there, little kids included. Here’s a review of some of our favorite Haggadot, as well as some online materials that just may suit your fancy.
