Overview

This rich and uplifting anthology, devoted to the Passover holiday, brings together many highly creative and prominent contemporary writers whose contributions all serve to enhance our experience of the Seder, the most ancient, continuously observed ceremony which the Jewish people have participated in throughout the generations. During the Passover Seder, we read from the Haggadah that "in every generation" it is our obligation to retell the story of the exodus from Egypt. The editors of In Every Generation: A Treasury of Inspiration for Passover and the Seder help us to fulfill this mitzvah by selecting from among the finest teachers of our time, each of whom offers timely and timeless insight into the major themes as well as the details of this holy Jewish festival. Among the inspiring and diverse authors to be found in this exceptional volume are Elie Wiesel, Lawrence Kushner, Letty Cottin Pogrebin, Shlomo Riskin, and Peninnah Schram, to name a few. Although the contributors to this volume represent a wide spectrum within the Jewish community, all have been carefully chosen to enrich our appreciation of this holiday in general, and the family Seder in particular.
