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
