The spring liberation holiday of Passover (Pesach) offers a rich illustration of the linguistic diversity of the Jewish people. Wherever Jews have celebrated this holiday, they have incorporated songs, recitation, and/or conversation in their specific communal language(s). In 2020, the Jewish Language Project is featuring Passover traditions by offering a delightful multimedia concert, recipes from around the world, images and videos of Passover songs in many languages, and an original haggadah supplement for you to bring these traditions to your seder guests.
