Editorial Reviews

Lisa Bonos
With this participatory and egalitarian handbook, the Robertses create a virtual seat at their seder table …While establishment Judaism often struggles to embrace mixed marriages, the Robertses…provide an inclusive guide that extends beyond Passover to address interfaith unions…
—The Washington Post
Washington Post
“With this participatory and egalitarian handbook, the Robertses create a virtual seat at their seder table. . . . the Robertses provide an inclusive guide that extends beyond Passover to address interfaith unions.”
J Weekly
“Cokie and Steve Roberts have written a book that’s at once a practical, accessible haggadah for Passover and a roadmap of sorts for other interfaith couples grappling with the task of raising a family with two different religions.”
Booklist
“[A] Haggadah that all can use and understand. . . . An excellent resource for interfaith families and anyone who needs a basic introduction to Passover traditions.”
