    One thought on “Our Haggadah: Uniting Traditions for Interfaith Families

    1. Laurie

      I absolutely loved this book from start to finish. I ordered four of them and am looking forward to using them this year for our Passover Seder. My husband and I are both Jewish, but we have had similar frustrations with the Haggadahs we have being too long and too boring. I have always loved Cokie Roberts on the radio and so it is no surprise that her sense of humor and intelligence shine through in this book. We always try to invite people who are not of the Jewish faith to our Passover celebr [...]

      Excellent little book that explains what a seder is and how to have one -- very informative for a Christian reader.

    3. Dennis Fischman

      Two groups of people should read this book: people who don't know very much about the Passover Seder and people who don't know very much about interfaith marriages. Those in the first group will get a very reasonable explanation of what it's all about and how to plan a Seder (along with the Robertses cut-and-paste Haggadah, an art form with a long Jewish history).Those in the second group can read the introductions to get a sense of how a secular Jew and a religious Catholic can make a meaningfu [...]

      I had planned to use "Our Haggadah" at my Passover table this year. Instead, we ended up at multi-family gathering for the first seder, and on the second night we were so wiped out from the previous evening that our pre-dinner seder lasted all of seven minutes. ;)This was, however, an enlightening read, and I appreciate the effort that went into this interfaith haggadah. This is more than an order of service for the Passover seder; it's also an exploration of the importance, challenges and beaut [...]

    5. Mindy

      I find reading books authored by Cokie Roberts and Steve Roberts to be very insightful. Each has a successful career in journalism and so writes extraordinarily well even when writing about such personal family life. The perspectives they give in this book enhances your insight in how their marriage and family can thrive with the presence of traditional religious ritual and deep personal faith. I can easily recommend this book though I wish it were in paperback or with a spiral binder for ease a [...]

      2 stars isn't really fair. Two and a half, maybe? The anecdotes about the Roberts' life together are sweet and worth reading. The haggadah is just a haggadah, with nothing unique or especially enlightening or fun about it. The recipes are mostly links to websites. The Hebrew has been printed in a font so tiny I doubt a native Israeli could read it aloud by seder candlelight.I love Cokie Roberts on the radio, but I'm glad I read this one as a library book. I won't be adding it to my haggadah coll [...]

      My husband and I are not Jewish but this book made me want to host a Seder. Passover is a very detailed celebration and I don't think I would do it justice so now I'll just be hoping to someday get invited to one :) The underlying message of inclusion and the celebration of freedom is one many people can relate to so non-Jewish readers might still find it interesting.

    8. Francine

      This is one part family history and one part instruction book. I just loved reading it (I am a big fan of Cokie Roberts' work).This is a warm, inclusive book about a couple who share common values but not a common faith. Cokie and Steve Roberts forged their own way and did it splendidly.Highly recommended

    9. David

      In preparation for our 2012 seder I decided to look at seders other people have experienced. This one, performed by Steve and Cokie Roberts for many years, is a nice way to honor the traditions, keep things moving and be inclusive.

    10. Ashley

      I really loved this book. It allowed me to make a lot of connections between Christianity and Judaism. My husband and I will definitely be using this information to start making our own Passover traditions.

    11. Rachel

      Local and interfaith iews; we share stuff in common. :p. I reviewed this Passover Haggadah here: chavalah.wordpress/2011/0
