 Like buds on a tree, new Passover Haggadot are a sure sign of spring. The most-published book in the Jewish community, the Haggadah appears in a variety of forms every year, appealing to the scholar and the beginner, the artist and the historian, the child and the senior citizen.

Jerusalem - While their students savored every minute of summer vacation, an international group of senior educators spent part of their holiday break in an Israeli classroom. A varied mix of Hebrew day school professionals attended the Principal's Seminar on Jewish Education in the Diaspora at Bar Ilan University's Lookstein Center, which ran from July 10-24. Held partially on campus, partially in Jerusalem, the seminar afforded principals the ordinarily rare opportunity to share ideas with their peers, learn new strategies and assess their schools' strengths and weaknesses.
