HAROSET WORKSHOP EXPERIENCE: PDF
Haroset - no matter how you spell it is one of the very special treats for the Seder. Yet this treat is a very important part of the ritual - whether you dip maror in haroset, or you use it with matzah and maror for the Hillel "sandwich" or just enjoy it at the Seder as a side-dish. Consider making many different haroset recipes to enjoy at each Seder. The ingredients have varied from the time of the Talmud and from country to country. For home or for schools. Read, eat and enjoy. Download as a PDF.

BASIC PASSOVER HAGGADAH: PDF
This very basic and brief Haggadah is intended for the most elementary Seder, perhaps for the less experienced leader or the family with young children. Download the PDF and print as needed. It does NOT have all the songs in the 5767 Seder Songbook, and I would encourage you to download the Seder Songbook and print it separately for your selective use.
