Abstract
Women's seders have been growing in popularity around the world. Organizations in Israel, Britain, Canada and across the United States now sponsor women's seders. They have become increasingly common in recent years for synagogues, Jewish community centers and college Hillels. They have become mainstream, and a growing number of Haggadot emphasize women's roles in the story of the Israelites' Exodus and in Jewish history. Women's seders have emerged as one of the most meaningful and popular new rituals in contemporary Jewish life, allowing us a unique avenue for exploring our Jewish identity and deepening the spirituality of our Passover celebration.
