Overview

The rich traditions of Passover come alive in this contemporary family haggadah. As children and adults gather at the seder dinner to remember the Israelites' journey from slavery to freedom, this creative yet authentic haggadah will guide and engage them. It takes children beyond the Four Questions and the search for the afikomen, encouraging them to enjoy every step of the seder. Through stories, songs, poems, activities, and explanations, children can step back in time to experience the exodus as if they themselves were leaving Egypt -- and at the same time understand the significance of Passover traditions today. Lushly illustrated, with the blessings and text of every major section of the haggadah in Hebrew, English translation, and transliteration, the welcoming and accessible style of Why On This Night? will make it a treasured seder companion year after year.

Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
Rahel Musleah's Why On This Night? will reach a wide range of ages, with parents reading aloud to the younger set, as it celebrates the rich traditions of Passover through stories, poems, and activities. There's a lot of text here but the entire family can participate in the book's revelations.
