Today is the first day of Passover. The 8-day holiday celebrates the Jewish liberation from slavery in ancient Egypt. Traditionally, on the first two nights of Passover, Jewish families hold dinners or Seders where friends and family gather to reflect and tell stories.

Seven years ago, Amy Goodman went to an unusual Seder in New York City. Begun in 1976 by Gloria Steinem and Jewish feminist writers Esther Broner, author of ??The Telling and ??Women’s Haggaddah, (Harper Collins, San Francisco) and Phyllis Chesler, the unique Passover dinner celebrated women and liberation.
