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.
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
Videos and Mobile Apps
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.
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.
