Like almost all festival meals, the Passover seder begins with Kiddush, the sanctification of the day.
JDate is celebrating this year’s Passover with the launch of the first-ever JDate Haggadah! Designed to be a simple, easy-to-use guide to the Passover Seder, the JDate Haggadah eBook gives practicing Jews all the info they need to host a complete Seder via tablet or smartphone – with a modern, kitschy twist.

They called her “Battling Bella,” and Bella Savitsky Abzug (1920-1998) lived up to that nickname. Born in New York City to Russian Jewish immigrants, Bella earned an undergraduate degree at Hunter College and a law degree from Columbia University.
