And finally –
Pesach Place Cards!

What this book is not:
This book is NOT a cookbook. Often, when I tell people, right away they guess that my book is filled with Pesach recipes. It does not have a single recipe! There are So many wonderful cookbooks devoted to Pesach cooking that I didn’t feel the need to add another one to the shelf. This book is purely an organizational workbook to help get your Pesach planning into a systematized routine so that it takes the stress out of it. Quite literally – its goal is to help you turn from Frazzled to Free.
My intention for this book was so that any woman (or man) from any background regardless of affiliation should be able to find it useful in their Yom Tov preparations. Pesach is a holiday that centers around individual minhagim (customs), and these customs vary depending on your community and even within your own family. In order to allow for a wide variety of people to use my book, I included a wide variety of ideas and foods that some use and others don’t.
If you have any questions regarding your family’s traditions, please speak with your spouse or your Rabbi to help you in this area. (Or, ask your mother in law, she’ll tell you what to do! 🙂
