No Seder Without You

Passover Past and Future

By Joan Goldstein Parker

Where are you going for Seder?

Each spring, this question connects our families. Every Passover celebration reinforces our tradition, carrying it forward to the next generation. In No Seder Without You, the author deftly turns her childhood memories into a charming reminder to our children and grandchildren that, without them, there is no Seder. Fully illustrated, this combination of witty childhood observations and sincere hope for the future makes the perfect gift.

For 8- to 13-year-year-olds and the families who love them.line drawing of spring flowers for the Seder table
