A worthy endeavor, but there are faults
The Roberts have made a great start at integrating the various aspects of the Jewish Pesach and the Christian Easter. The first two chapters are excellent in explaining as to how they arrived as this publication. As one who has been raised in Reform Judaism and a subscriber to the basic tenets as set down in Germany in 1809, my wife and I have long had very ecumenical sedars. Two of our daughters have married outside of Judaism. I find fault with the book in that for one season of the year they revert to Kosher food. The Roberts, sadly so, are apparently, not aware that Kosher food is not an edict of our religion, but actually something which has come to pass in more recent centuries. The Kashering of food is highly remunerative to some rabbis and even more so at Passover time. Why do they find it necessary to have kosher food only at this time. For more information about the tenets of Reform Judaism, the reader is referred to The Society for Classical Reform Judaism. With some changes in this tome, it would fit well into that which this Society promotes.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
