Overview

This best-selling condensed version of The Family Sedercontains all major elements of the Passover Seder service. It has found great favor with those whose Passover celebration previously consisted of little more than a meal.


About the Author:Alfred J. Kolatch, a graduate of the Teachers’ Institute of Yeshiva University and its College of Liberal Arts, was ordained by the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, which subsequently awarded him the Doctor of Divinity degree, honoris causa . From 1941 to 1948 he served as rabbi of congregations in Columbia, South Carolina, and Kew Gardens, New York, and as a chaplain in the United States Army. In 1948 he founded Jonathan David Publishers, of which he has since been president and editor-in-chief.

Rabbi Kolatch has authored numerous books, the most popular of which are Great Jewish Quotations, How to Live a Jewish Life, What Jews Say About God, This Is the Torah, and the best-selling Jewish Book of Why and its sequel, The Second Jewish Book of Why. Several of his works deal with nomenclature, about which he is an acknowledged authority. The New Name Dictionary and The Complete Dictionary of English and Hebrew First Names are his most recent works on the subject. Other books by the author include Our Religion: The Torah, The Jewish Heritage Quiz Book, The Jewish Mourner's Book of Why, Who's Who in the Talmud, and The Family Seder.

In addition to his scholarly work, Rabbi Kolatch is interested in the work of the military chaplaincy and has served as president of the Association of Jewish Chaplains of the Armed Forces and as vice-president of the interdenominational Military Chaplains Association of the United States.

This concise edition of a traditional Passover Haggadah serves as a meaningful and inspirational vehicle for those whose knowledge of Hebrew may be limited, but whose passion for freedom runs deep.

    A Seder When You Have Young Children

    You'd love to have a traditional seder service, but the children will never sit for an hour and a half before eating. Many of your guests don't read or understand Hebrew. Yet, you want more than a dinner. You want tradition. The Concise Family Seder will serve you well. You may want to slightly change the order of things, but with a little page shuffling, you can include virtually everything in the seder service, prior to the meal, in about 20 minutes or less, with the exception of Birkat (grace after meals). My family has a long traditional Conservative history, but there are many new family members who are new to Judaism and Jewish celebrations. The Concise Family Seder does a wonderful job of making it comfortable for everyone to participate and understand the service.
