The Gateways Haggadah

A Seder for the Whole Family

Everyone has a place at the Passover Seder table

The Gateways Haggadah welcomes families with children of all abilities and disabilities to a Passover celebration that is accessible for the whole family. Step-by-step directions for every element of the Passover Seder are clearly illustrated with more than 70 vibrant photographs. Each prayer’s meaning is illuminated by the use of over 150 picture communication symbols developed by Mayer-Johnson,™ the leading creator of symbol-adapted special education materials to assist individuals in overcoming their speech, language, and learning challenges. In this way, Seder participants can experience Passover through clear, direct language and through rich and varied images.

This easy-to-hold, concise Haggadah is respectful to all participants, whatever their abilities, and ensures that all can take part meaningfully in a complete Passover Seder that lasts about 30 minutes.
