Passover Roundup 2017

Passover is nearly upon us – a holiday that lends itself well to experiments in applied Jewish wisdom, even more than usual, and we hope some of the resources below will help you deepen and expand your experiences this year.

Haggadot and Seder Supplements

Sh’ma Now offers an entire issue on Dayenu, with multiple articles examining the impact, limitations, and nuances of this Jewish Sensibility…plus their printable conversation guide can help you explore further, at a seder or elsewhere.

Bible Raps has a Hip Hop Haggadah to add a new beat to your seder.

AJWS offers a full Haggadah on global justice: Next Year in a Just World

Tru’ah, the Rabbinic Call for Human Rights offers a selection of seder resources to bring in a variety of issues or infuse a overall perspective in your Passover practices.

If you’re looking for extra questions, go beyond the traditional four with 20 Table Topics from JewishBoston.com

Mechon Hadar, as always, has a rich collection of thinking on Passover’s themes and texts

And as always: take pieces from the above, find a wealth of other core and supplementary material, and assemble a haggadah that fits your unique personality and needs at Haggadot.com

Alternately, you can put together the perfect supplement/sourcesheet at Sefaria.org (now with accompanying app!)

 

Videos and Mobile Apps

 

 

The Order of the Seder from Nina Paley on Vimeo.

 

We don’t even know where to start with all the wonderful passover resources at BimBam!  There’s the Let’s Get Ready for Passover game for kids, all their videos, and more…go explore!

 

 

 

AJWS offers a version of Dayenu this year designed to get you to talk about the Sensibility (pairs great with our Sh’ma Now link above)  And if you need to learn the song, there’s no time like the present.

 

CHAD GADYA from Nina Paley on Vimeo.

And a reminder of the breadth of Jewish wisdom – we never get tired of the Rube Goldberg Seder, from the students at Technion!

 

 

 

And…a bit of a stretch we hope you’ll nonetheless appreciate.  At the end of the seder, where does our narrative land?  Not just freedom but the hope and promise of home.  This video from the YMCA Jerusalem Youth Chorus isn’t traditional, but is worth a listen, whether or not it fits into your Passover this year.
