Haggadah: Symbol of Nisan

OMG-D/dess! It’s almost time for Passover!

With Nisan upon us, preparations for our annual journey out of Mitzrayim begin in earnest.  Whether you take a traditional or modern approach, believe in G!d(dess) or not — Passover is a holiday pretty much all Jews can connect to.  There are so many things we could explore as the symbol of Nisan, but we’re going to explore the Haggadah as the ritual object of Nisan.  

“More than any other single ceremonial object or document, the Haggadah exemplifies the continuous evolution of the Jewish symbolic tradition.”
