Imagine your Passover Seder as a conversation. Imagine asking your children questions that spark discussion. In "More Than Four Questions," master educator Sharon Marson has collected questions asked her by children over the years, about the Exodus from Egypt, about the Passover holiday, and about the Seder ritual itself. These questions make a great jumping off point for Passover discussion. Beneath the questions is a broad expanse of white space - where children preparing for the holiday can write or draw their answers to the questions. This book also collects answers given by children to these questions, answers rich with spiritual depth and creativity. "A beautiful enhancement to any Seder. I loved reading through Sharon Marson's new guide to our Hagaddah. I rethought basic questions that had lost their meaning to me. She pushed me to open my heart and mind, with an extreme gentleness, through her enormous humility and disarming manner, to re-experience a connection to goodness, holiness, kindness, purposefulness, and be helped through the process with the voices of our children." -- Rabbi Binyamin Krauss, principal, SAR Academy "'More Than Four Questions' will take families on a journey of learning and reflection, bringing the larger-than-life events and ideas of our heritage to bear on the world that we experience today. The combination of structure and openness provides an ideal framework for turning your Seder into a very special educational experience." - Rabbi Naphtali Harcsztark, principal, SAR High School "This book opens a wide door to questions of all sorts and sizes and makes ample room for a variety of answers. What a treat to read the profound ideas of children and adults alike about the Seder experience and the Pesach story as well as Sharon's spiritually engaged commentary." - Dr. Wendy Zierler, professor of modern Jewish literature, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion
