LA Times—Passover story goes digital

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Thousands of years after Moses led his people out of Egypt, the Passover story is going digital.

At Monday's Seder meal, dozens of families will be reading the traditional tableside ceremony from a Haggadah, a text guiding the Seder, that they have personalized by uploading family photos to replace stock illustrations of Pharaoh and the slaves.

Behrman House, a Jewish educational publisher in Springfield, N.J., has sold more than 100 sets of the cyber-assisted version of its Family Haggadah.

The personalized Haggadah -- the Hebrew word means "telling" or "narrative" -- recounts the biblical Exodus story and instructs families to relate it to their children as though they were along on the journey.

Read it all.
