Five resources for Passover 5767

Although by no means a comprehensive list (or even necessarily the best of what's out there), here are a few gems that I've discovered over the past few days while researching the previous posts (in no particular order):

  • Eliezer Segel's modern classic "Uncle Eli's Special-for-Kids Most Fun Ever Under-the-Table Passover Haggadah" is written in the style of Dr. Seuss and provides brief, straightforward explanations of all the seder rituals and Hebrew terms.

  • Dr. Barry Dov Lerner's has a hosts a variety of downloadable Passover texts, including a variety of haggadas, a songbook, and a handy guide to creating your own "heirloom family haggadah."

  • The Jewish Agency for Israel hosts an astonishingly comprehensive variety of educational resources for Passover, and in five languages.

  • Rabbi Mark Zimmerman at provides (Ashkenazi style) audio clips for most of the prayers and songs of the seder.

  • And finally, among the many Passover resources of the Distance Learning project of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America is Dr. Steve Brown's guide to leading a Passover seder based on his many years of experience leading model seders.

Happy Passover, everyone!

Good stuff! Here's another site with recordings of seder songs. It also lists them with the corresponding pages in some of the major haggadot out there.

Thanks for posting these! The kids' haggadah looks fun.
