Women's seders have recently emerged as one of the most meaningful and popular rituals in contemporary Jewish life. These two books bring together the voices of over 150 Jewish women -- authors, scholars, activists, rabbis, artists, political leaders, and students -- to share new insights about Passover and to discuss the origins, evolution, and significance of women's seders.This first-of-its-kind resource provides in The Women's Passover Companion a complete exploration of the questions at the heart of this contemporary ritual, and in The Women's Seder Sourcebook over 200 texts and ideas for a women's seder and practical guidance for planning the event. These innovative readings can be easily incorporated into a family seder as well.-- Presents an inspiring collection of Jewish women's writings on Passover, the Exodus story, and women's seders.-- Provides readers with textual resources to compile their own women's Haggadah and a practical guide to planning a women's seder, based on information from successful seder organizers around the world.-- Offers a wide variety of women's writings that can be incorporated into the family seder to bring women's voices to the table.-- Includes a formal curriculum of texts, discussion questions, and writing exercises for further study, to transform the planning process for a women's seder into a community-building and Jewish learning experience.For example, in Wilmington, Delaware, the Orthodox women on the seder planning committee thought that the shehecheyanu prayer (the blessing for a special, long-awaited occasion) should not be said at the annual womena#39;s seder. 3 Foranbsp;...
