Pesach: Sing-Along-at-Home

The Passover seder is my favorite Jewish ritual. That's probably because I come from a Pesach-loving family who customized the Haggadah, created and maintained our own traditions, and made everyone -- including "the stranger" -- feel at home. Wilen family seders famously featured silly songs, and, as we went around the table(s), a part for everyone to read, explanations for our intermarried cousins and Gentile friends, plus strict adherence to the Four Cups of Wine protocol.
