Like an Orange on a Seder Plate: Our Feminist Haggadah By Ruth Simkin Cover Image


Not so very long ago, a woman wanted to know why women can't be up on the bimah (alter), holding the torah. She asked the rabbi why this was so. The "learned rabbi" responded, stroking his beard, "A woman should be on the bimah like an orange should be on the Seder plate!"

Now, each year at Passover, we give to an orange the place of honor on our Seder plate.

This haggadah is a script for sharing the Passover Seder together in a contemporary, woman-affirming manner. It is truly a celebration for all.
