This year is different. In our quest to protect each other, so many of us will be apart for the very first time on Seder night. But we don’t need to go on this journey of the Seder night alone.
And so, I invited the remarkable and talented rabbis and rebbetzins of our community to be our companions on this journey. Their response, as always, has been so positive and warm.
I’m excited and honoured to present the first ever All Together Now – A Unity Haggadah Companion by the rabbis and rebbetzins of South Africa. It is a compendium of insights and inspirational ideas, each of which reflects the unique insights and personalities of their authors.
I invite you all to pore over the ideas, to explore them as preparation for your Seder. Print out the companion and select a few ideas that really speak to you to read out loud at your Seder.
We may be apart, but we can still make this year’s Seders the best and most meaningful we have ever experienced.
May G-d bring health and healing to our community, to our country, to our world.
I wish you all a Chag Kasher Vsame’ach,
Chief Rabbi Warren Goldstein
