The Passover Seder is one of the most important Jewish traditions, designed to remind celebrants of the rich and meaningful history of an ancient custom. Elie Wiesel breaks down the occasion in his part live-action, part animated video Elie Wiesel: Passover Seder. Commemorating the flight of the Israelites, the meal ritual can be daunting. Wiesel makes the experience both accessible and enjoyable as he shares personal memories with viewers. The presentation is artistically achieved and serves to inform the entire family. Payers, songs, and stories all make up Wiesel's instruction, which leaves both a spiritual and practical impression.
