Written by Rabbi Kerry Olitzky, former executive director of Big Tent Judaism and named by Newsweek as one of the 50 Leading Rabbis in North America, this inclusive haggadah invites people of all faiths and backgrounds to feel welcome at a seder. It's ideal for multicultural, interfaith, and unaffiliated families. It includes traditional seder texts supplemented by quotes, poems, readings, and stories that acknowledge, value, and include the wide range of backgrounds of seder participants today while inspiring us with a universal message of freedom.
