Rosalie and Jerry Roth of Sacramento, California, involve their two children, Miriam and Daniel, by encouraging them to create artistic place cards for seder seating arrangements. The children also plant parsley in the garden and serve the harvest at the seder dinner. "It's important to acknowledge everyone's contribution at the seder," adds Rosalie.
Families should remember that involving children in the Passover seder is not just about teaching ancestral history. Children who help prepare the house for the holiday, and offer artistic contributions to the seder dinner, are experiencing the joy in Jewish traditions that can be handed down through the generations.
