Celebrating Passover

The first two nights of Passover are celebrated with the Seder meal. It is a feast of celebration, togetherness and remembrance--and because of its important stature, many cooks will spend a considerable amount of time planning and cooking the meal.

During the Seder, friends and family gather around the dinner table and read from the Haggadah (the book used to guide the Seder).

Traditional Seder Menu

The service is traditionally led by the head of the household, and that person will often ask family and friends to participate by reading passages or engaging in a discussion of the story as it is unfolding. The storytelling can take anywhere from one to three hours, depending on how much time is spent discussing details of the story. During the service, there is very little food eaten--symbolic foods and wine--so by the time the service comes to a close, everyone is ready for the celebratory meal.
