At every Passover seder Jews revisit magical childhood memories.

A glorious ceremonial family dinner held this year on April 22nd, the seder brings to life the ancient Hebrews’ liberation from slavery and their flight from Egypt. Nearly eighty percent of North American Jews--and many non-Jews as well--attend a seder every year, making Passover the most celebrated--and best-loved--of all the Jewish holidays.
