There's a series of children's books set in turn of the century New York City. My children adored listening to the "All of a Kind Family" stories on tape, and we all learned so much about Jewish customs and celebrations in the process. I enjoyed reading this...

What an interesting post. I love the image of gentiles doding lettuce leaves.

New twists to the Passover seder "telling" abound, some delightful and profound. On my blog today, I posted about a custom born of feminist sensibilities, seeking inclusiveness in the story of scorned and forgotten populations.

When I had my horrible toothache a few weeks ago, it just made me want to go out and persecute all those who were not like me. What an absurd interpretation.

And, you know, the lettuce may just be a French thing. After all, they're the ones who have that Easter bell when so many of the rest of us in the world have the Easter bunny.

The Yul Brynner shot is something to feast on.

Happy Passover!

I was so happy to read this-my childhood seders were led by my cousins' grandfather who always passed the seder plate over our heads (making sure to touch the top of each of our heads in the process) and I always wondered where that custom came from. Do you know what the explanation is behind this custom? I would love to know. It might be fun to incorporate some of these customs into next year's seder. I love the flinging of greens out the window image.
I was also addicted to reading the "All of a Kind Family" books when I was young and am glad to hear they are still being read (or listened to).

this post was hilarious. you gotta love those de mille one does fake looking egyptians like the man himself. will forever have a soft spot for pharoahs and yul brynner as a result of TTC...biblical epics ROCK

I think that most Egyptians disease - at least those not caused by accident and clear - was the work of hostile forces: 'discount male or female, spirit or person is dead' It was for this reason that sorcerers, in addition to the physicians were interested in addressing the disease public.
