Of all the Jewish holidays, Passover is the one celebrated the most. And because it is mostly celebrated at home, it is the one that is perhaps the most personal in style. Families have traditions and rules, songs we sing and the ones we don't. We have long-version Seders and shorter ones and a wide variety of foods we eat (all in the shadow of the Chametz we don't).
The uniqueness of Passover as a DIY at-home holiday has translated into a wide range of Hagaddahs too. Some go back hundreds of years, others are new. There is even a Trump Hagaddah. Each is unique in style, but since they tell the same story, they have over hundreds of years become a bit of a documented history. JTA's Josefin Dolstein takes us on a journey of Jewish history with four Haggadahs, each with its own visual adaptation to demonstrate that history.
As we all sit down for Seder with our friends, our families and our stories with the Hagaddahs we always use (or the ones we scramble to have enough copies of), Dayenu to those of you celebrating over one night or over two.
Chag Sameach to all. Let's celebrate! And since most of us are likely to eat too much, perhaps we go for a walk or maybe even a run the next day. It's SPRING.
