    Rejoice! Spring has arrived, and Pesach is here. The time of our liberation is at hand. The Exodus from our narrow straits is re-enacted once more.

  • Poet’s Haggadah story

    April 13, 2011 | 5:52 pm

    Every year at Passover, families around the world pull out their Haggadahs for their Seders, and whether they use a traditional text, a modern one, or even Maxwell House, the story and the words remain largely the same.  But one man, Rick Lupert, saw an opportunity to do something...

    Now that we've just finished two seders celebrating our escape from Egypt, a new exhibit at the Skirball Cultural Center demonstrates that not every Jew got out of Egypt -- or wanted to.

    "Jewish Life in Ancient Egypt: A Family Archive From the Nile Valley," revolves around...

    Woven into many Jews' seders when they sit down to celebrate Passover this year will be a spate of new traditions.

    A Miriam's Cup next to Elijah's represents the role of the prophetess Miriam in the Exodus and highlights women's contributions to Jewish culture. A seemingly...

    It's that time of year, when Coca-Cola substitutes sugar for high-fructose corn syrup to guarantee that "Coke is it" at Ashkenazi seders. This special batch is deliverance from the bitter anguish of Aspartame-sweetened soft drinks at the Passover table and a trip into the past for...
