New York Times bestsellers Cokie Roberts and Steven V. Roberts offer a unique, personalized vision of the traditional Passover Haggadah, combining their own family traditions withfavorites fromother families in a fun, intimate guide written especially for couples of mixed faiths. A fresh and informative tour through the rituals of the Pesach Seder as well as a compelling rendition of the Exodus story, Our Haggadah is the perfect book for any interfaith family celebrating Passover. Readers of the couple's compelling account of their marriage, From This Day Forward ( Instructive and inspiring New York Times Book Review) as well as Cokie Roberts We Are Our Mothers Daughters and Steven V. Roberts My Father's Houses, will be enthralled by this glimpse into the couple's inclusive Passover rituals.
“With this participatory and egalitarian handbook, the Robertses create a virtual seat at their seder table. . . . the Robertses provide an inclusive guide that extends beyond Passover to address interfaith unions.”
“Cokie and Steve Roberts have written a book that’s at once a practical, accessible haggadah for Passover and a roadmap of sorts for other interfaith couples grappling with the task of raising a family with two different religions.”
“[A] Haggadah that all can use and understand. . . . An excellent resource for interfaith families and anyone who needs a basic introduction to Passover traditions.”
When Cokie and Steve Roberts married in 1966, they faced a choice familiar to many mixed-faith couples: practice no religion, pick one or the other, or find ways to observe both. In Our Haggadah, the couple describes how they celebrate Passover with family and friends of all faiths. More at NPR.org
