JewishBoston.com is offering its first do-it-yourself Seder kit. Free to Boston-area residents, ages 18 to 40, who sign up by April 8, ‘Seder in a Box’ includes: a Seder plate, a basic Haggadah, a leader’s guide, recipes, a shopping list, instructions for setting the table, and a matzo cover. Oh, and some green plastic frogs, representing one of the 10 plagues.
The Seder in a Box program has been much more successful than we ever dreamed it might be! If you’re between 18 and 40 and live in the greater Boston area, order your Seder in a Box today!
At work, my life has already been focused on Passover for the last two weeks. I’m really proud of the free, downloadable Haggadah I wrote — please download a copy and tell your friends to do so too! I do sort of regret not finding a way to work this Will Finn song into it… after all, it describes the Passover experience of a Jewish family from the Boston area! (This recording is from the revue of Finn’s work entitled Make Me A Song.)
I do love this song, and it kills me how perfectly it captures the joy and pain, silliness and sadness that holidays with families can evoke.
