“With this participatory and egalitarian handbook, the Robertses create a virtual seat at their seder table. . . . the Robertses provide an inclusive guide that extends beyond Passover to address interfaith unions.” (Washington Post)
“Cokie and Steve Roberts have written a book that’s at once a practical, accessible haggadah for Passover and a roadmap of sorts for other interfaith couples grappling with the task of raising a family with two different religions.” (J Weekly)
“[A] Haggadah that all can use and understand. . . . An excellent resource for interfaith families and anyone who needs a basic introduction to Passover traditions.” (Booklist)
From the Back Cover
New York Times bestselling authors and journalists Cokie and Steve Roberts share their Passover traditions in this engaging version of the Haggadah for couples and families of mixed faiths.
When they met more than forty years ago, Cokie and Steve Roberts found common ground in their shared values, despite their different religious beliefs. Choosing to honor both of their faiths and traditions, they began hosting a Passover Seder that has evolved from a small family gathering to a veritable event celebrated with loved ones from all walks of life.
Based on the time-honored Haggadah—the text read throughout the evening that gives order to the ritual meal—Our Haggadah is a practical guide for interfaith families, whether they're celebrating their very first Passover or starting a new tradition. Originally composed on a typewriter and stapled together, Our Haggadah has been the Roberts family's handbook for each Seder and comes from years of adapting and expanding their Seders to welcome all who wish to take part in the celebration. From finding a Seder plate to preparing traditional and nontraditional foods, from the customary prayers to new ways for guests to participate, Cokie and Steve share their special approach to the holiday and the lessons they've learned over the years as an interfaith couple.

So the book has 3 good parts - 1) the Roberts love story - and travelogue; 2) the Exodus story told in the Haggadah; and 3) recipes(!). I recommend it to any reader interested in any or all of the 3 parts!
Thank you Cokie and Steve, for such a beautiful book explaining so gently how you combined and melded your lives together. We have been married 20 years and are making this journey together and found your book a treasure of combining, mixing, blending, understanding the two religions....all coming from the one God, the God of Abraham, I do believe we will all get THERE in the end. I know my hubby and I will, with the blessing of this gentle sweet book. It will be my treasure for the rest of my life. And yes we have bought the books on Amazon, and will buy more as we go along, but this special book will be a resource forever.
Their explanations bring in history and love at the same time. I recommend it for all spiritually minded folk, Jew and non, and especially interfaith families. I can see no more God-like way to bring a lifetime of joy to all. I never believed God wanted to beat love into us, and the Roberts have shone a way that paints word pictures showing one families journey of loving each other, family, friends,and above all our Lord God.
I do wish it came as a paperback though so that it would be easier to hold open.
