Overview

The Passover Seder is a time when Jewish families around the world gather together to retell the story of the Jewish People’s passage from slavery in Egypt to freedom. It is also a time when we share stories about our Sages, such as the 15 stories in this book – one story for each step in the Seder - which have been culled from the vast repository of Chassidic and other traditional Jewish stories pertaining to the Passover holiday and the Haggadah.
