Recipes to Share for Passover

created by Jayne Cohen

The Haggadah, the Passover book, tells us over and over to honor the stranger because we were once strangers in a strange land. Now, when many of us won’t even be able to celebrate with our extended family and friends, how can we even imagine welcoming the stranger? For me, the answer is in sharing our recipes. Our recipes tell our family stories and by sharing those recipes with others, we bring them into the warm embrace of our family. Though we may be in different places on Passover, when we are eating the same dishes we are in many ways sharing our family table with others.
