How to Teach the Haggadah

Published on

Much can be done to make the Seder more relevant to contemporary needs and simultaneously truer to the spirit of the Rabbis as educators. Noam Zion presents the Hagaddah as an educational dialogue between parents and child, leader and participant. He offer stories and readings as well as commentaries and activities that can fuel a dynamic evening of storytelling and discussion, dramatics and singing. In this session, he concentrates on the Ma Nishtana and the Four Sons.
