Overview
A guide to help you invigorate your Seder, create lively discussions, and make personal connections with the Exodus story today. For many people, the act of simply reading the Haggadah no longer fulfills the Passover Seder's purpose: to help you feel as if you personally had gone out of Egypt. Too often, the ritual meal has become predictable, boring, and uninspiring. Creating Lively Passover Seders, Second Edition, is an innovative, interactive guide to help encourage fresh perspectives and lively dialogue. With three new chapters, this intriguing Haggadah companion has been revised, updated, and expanded, and offers thematic discussion topics, text study ideas, activities, and readings that come alive in the traditional group setting of the Passover Seder. Each activity and discussion idea aims to: Deepen your understanding of the Haggadah Provide new opportunities for engaging the themes of the Passover festival Develop familiarity with the Exodus story, as well as the life and times of the people who shaped the development of the Haggadah Reliving the Exodus is not about remembering an event long ago, but about participating in a conversation that provides hope and strength for the struggle to make tomorrow a brighter day. With this complete resource, you can create more meaningful encounters with Jewish values, traditions, and texts that lead well beyond the Seder itself.

Reviews - What do customers think about Creating Lively Passover Seders: A Sourcebook of Engaging Tales, Texts & Activities?

Better off with a collection of interesting haggadot  Dec 16, 2008
I hate to put out a negative review on something others seem to get so much out of, but I am disappointed in this book. First it makes the assumption that a traditional seder is boring; then it suggests more readings and long texts which seem to only serve to make for a longer and duller seder.
I collect haggadot and use passages and activities from different ones each year. I'd suggest looking through any selection of haggadot for new perspectives and commentary rather than tackling the uninspiring passages presented her
 
Personal hagadah  May 2, 2008
Wonderful readable useful bnook with private personal thought on the travels each of must take and interesting questions to add to the seder discussion A must for the Passover library
 
Planning an unforgettable yearly tradition  Jul 17, 2004
Creating Lively Passover Seders: A Sourcebook Of Engaging Tales, Texts & Activities encourages fresh perspectives and engaging dialogue with regard to reading the Haggadah and celebrating Passover. Written to promote familiarity with the Exodus story, offer insight into the historical background, and bring about increased understanding and enjoyment of the Passover celebration, Creating Lively Passover Seders is both a superb personal reference and a quality companion to planning an unforgettable yearly tradition.
 
more than matzah balls  Mar 15, 2004
Passover is the ultimate home holiday. But Passover is so much richer than family, friends and food--it is an opportunity to delve into Jewish heritage and find its relevance to so many of today's pressing concerns.David Arnow gives Seder leaders the tools to create spectacular Seders for years to come. Just as the meal takes preparation, the Seder takes preparation beyond using the Haggadah. For all ages, for all levels of knowledge of Jewish history and tradition, David Arnow provides dynamic materials, ideas, questions and methods that are relevant to the present and respectful of the past. No matter how many years you have been conducting Seders, this book will amaze you and enrich your experience.
