New Haggadah and Seder music online

At our Temple Israel 2nd night seder we'll again be using the Reform movement's haggadah The Open Door edited by Rabbi Sue Levi Elwell.  New haggadot are published each year and I'd like also to put in a plug for a wonderful new haggadah that you might want to use at your home sedarim, or simply add to your Jewish library. Wellsprings of Freedom: The Renew Our Days Haggadah is the most recent volume in the "Hadesh Yameinu: Renew Our Days" series of prayerbooks edited by Rabbi Ron Aigen, spiritual leader of Dorshei Emet Reconstructionist Synagogue in Montreal.  You can order that book through the website  And that website also has a "music" section in which you can find recordings of many beloved seder melodies.   I really love Rabbi Aigen's sensitive mixing of contemporary inclusiveness and classical texts, as well as the aesthetical appeal of the overall layout of this new Haggadah.

Whichever Haggadah you use, may you have a joyous and sweet Passover holiday.
