Dr. Marcia Falk, in person and on Zoom, discussing her new Haggadah, Night of Beginnings: A Radical Re-Visioning of the Passover Seder

Presented by Riverside Temple Beth El

RSVP: for Zoom link

In person and on Zoom.

This Haggadah returns to the roots of the Passover festival with a full recounting of, and original commentary on, the Exodus story. This “radicalizing” of the seder—rooting it to its most ancient source, which is largely absent from the traditional haggadah and modern haggadot—is also “radical” in another sense, re-creating the rabbinic offerings with new blessings.

Dr. Marcia Falk is the author of The Book of Blessings; The Days Between: Blessings, Poems, and Directions of the Heart for the Jewish High Holiday Season; Inner East: Illuminated Poems and Blessings; and other books of poetry and translation.
