Each year during the Passover Seder, Jewish families recount the story of the Exodus from Egypt using the Haggadah as their guide book. Acclaimed authors Cokie and Steven V. Roberts share their unique and personalized vision of the traditional Haggadah, exploring their own family traditions, lessons they’ve learned as an interfaith couple, and inclusive Passover rituals.


Cokie Roberts is Political Commentator, ABC & NPR. In her more than forty years in broadcasting, she has won countless awards, including three Emmys. Steven V. Roberts, a journalist and analyst for more than 45 years, is Shapiro Professor of Media and Public Affairs at George Washington University. They are the coauthors of Our Haggadah: Uniting Traditions for Interfaith Families.
