  3. Seder Blessing for Diverse Backgrounds

    The following blessing was originally written by Rabbi Maurice Harris for Interfaithfamily.com

    In the Book of Exodus, we read that when the Hebrew slaves were finally able to break free from Pharaoh’s grasp, a mixed multitude of people fled Egypt with them. From our first moments as a nation, we discovered among us a mixed multitude of slaves and refugees, people of different languages and beliefs, journeying with us into the unknown wilderness.

  5. Who Can Remember? Hanukkah Story

    (NOTE: Sandy Brusin explains her motivation for writing this most beautiful story in the following way: “I wrote the story because I don’t like any of the children’s stories about Hanukah I’ve seen. They fall into one of two categories: schmaltz or baloney. The schmaltz stories usually have Iatkes sizzling in a pan—with mommy, of course, doing all the sizzling; and the baloney stories make a big deal out of the oil burning for eight days. I wanted to present the wonder of the story.
