Inviting guests for Seder is a tradition that goes back as long as the seder itself. You will be enthralled by the conversations of each interview, getting to know them and why they have invited the guests.”

Through the twists and turns of Jewish history including the bright and dark days, the celebration of the Seder as a family event has been central to Jewish Identity and continuity. The range of interviewees that participated in this podcast series and the guest they talk about inviting to their seder is remarkable and a reflection of the contribution the Jewish story has made to the world.”
