How to find free online short Passover Seder Haggadah
If you’re like me, you probably don’t like those long, drawn out Passover seders. Short and sweet is my preference. Anyway, I’ve been doing a search for short Free Online Passover haddagas. Last year we had a seder at our house and we will probably have a seder again this year. My boys are still pretty young. We want them to enjoy the seder and not be bored. Here are a few Passover haggadas I found online that include all the essentials, but are also short and sweet.
Passover 2016 starts in the evening (sundown) of Friday, April 22.
