The NPR veteran and her journalist husband Steve have written Our Haggadah: Uniting Traditions for Interfaith Families. The book is largely taken from what Cokie created in 1970 to guide the Roberts’ inclusive Seder. They now average 40 guests of varied faiths for their annual observance of Passover. Steve and Cokie joined me Tuesday morning on AirTalk.
The deeper value of their book is how it makes concrete a way to incorporate two faith and culture traditions that are very important to both spouses. If you know Cokie Roberts, it’s not surprising that she would take that challenge very seriously and find an original way to merge her faith with her husband’s cultural background.
