Every year we add something new for our Seder, and this year this will be our Hagada. I hope many questions will be posted, or be answered, or toughts wiil be shared. Thank you for the insight.
We live in Mexico and do our Seder in Spanish , but the Jewish values and traditions are shared we all the Jews of the world.

This is beautiful. André Aciman’s piece is just perfect, and we’ll be reading it at the beginning of our seder this year.
The artwork of the 10 plagues was beautiful. I have been looking for contemporary inspiration for my seder. Now I just have to cook and invite people.
Cut each paragraph of Aciman’s piece onto a separate slip and gave to ten of our Seder’s participants. A terrific intro piece with which to start the Seder. Many thanks for this offering.
Andre’ Acmiman’s “Before the Seder” will be part of our seder this year. Thanks.
Toda rabah to all the writers and artists!
All the pieces are wonderful. I used Andre Acmiman’s “Before the Seder” at both seders. Some people did not get it while others did. I liked the repetition of the words. The entire piece was very meaningful to my wife and me. The work fit in nicely as I incorporate remembering everyone’s relatives and how we all came to the USA. We also used Dmitry Salita’s piece when discussing “the Egypts” within all of us.
