The Passover Seder is a dinner of the telling. The Haggadah is read and it tells the story of how the children of Israel escaped slavery in Egypt.
My extended family includes those who celebrate Passover with an annual Seder. Monty in particular has written and pieced together his own Haggadah that takes into account all peoples' desires for freedom in its many forms. Friends and family gather every spring at his Seder and share appreciation for what they have and recognize the importance of continued efforts by each individual to make the world a better place.
The Seder includes symbolic food representing aspects of the story of the Jews exodus from Egypt. The bitter herb of horseradish, salt dipped parsley and eggs, lamb shank or roasted beet for our vegetarian table, and morer a cinnamon apple nut blend, and the most well -known matzah.
