Seder Shopping Is In Order

03/18/2010

 

 

 
For many seder participants, there is a Fifth Question each year — what new Haggadah do I want to buy this year, or what new seder plate, or what new artistic item for my yom tov table?
 
The answer — even in this age of online commerce — often comes in a Jewish gift shop and/or bookstore.
 
At Manhattan Judaica in Midtown, some shoppers started their Pesach shopping this week, looking at the latest Haggadahs and seder plates.

At West Side Judaica, seder plates are the hot item these days. A little south, at Manhattan Judaica, a new Haggadah by the late philosophical leader of the Modern Orthodox movement is a best-seller. Further south, at J. Levine Books & Judaica, novelty items like a Pharaoh punching bag and a where-did-the-wine-go? Elijah’s Cup are popular. In this national time of recession, in the Jewish period before Passover, business is off for many merchants – but it’s not as off as expected for businesses selling goods for Pesach.
