Ten Plagues Coasters Giveaway!

I was so thrilled to discover Matanote’s fabulous Passover coasters last year.

They quickly became one of the most coveted items to have around your seder table.

Well, they’re back!

Molly Rosenberg created Matanote after a disappointing quest to find thoughtful and well-designed paper goods for Jewish occasions.

She took matters into her own hands and launched Matanote Stationery in 2012.

    Our family’s Pesach tradition is to have origami frogs on our seder table. It dates back to my years in school when my 4th grade Hebrew teacher taught us how to fold paper frogs as a fun Passover-related activity. I came home and made a whole bunch of them, and my mom decided to add them on the table, one at each place setting. Many years later the tradition is still alive, in a few weeks I will be put to work once again to assemble 50+ paper frogs.

    For Passover, we like to try something new and different each year. For example, last year we made homemade matzah and tropical haroset.

    I love making our own matzah… Great way to teach those not familiar with traditional passover about what makes matzah kosher. It is also so simple..

    I have never been a fan of the traditional jarred gefilte fish. I was thrilled several years ago to discover a fried gefilte fish recipe in Nigella Lawson’s FEAST cookbook. They are truly a hit with everyone and needn’t be served hot or room temp so you can make them ahead. Great with tasty horseradish.

      I’m looking up that recipe. What a great idea. Sounds yummy.

    Living far away from our families, we almost always celebrate Passover with friends, who’ve become like an extended family to us. It’s fun to discover others’ must-have traditions and also see what we have in common. It also lets you give up on your inherited traditions and create your own.

    At 15 a good friend invited me to partake in her family’s sedar. I had never been to a seder before and knew little about the tradition. Her family happily explained to me the significance of each aspect of the seder. Being so warmly welcomed into another persons family tradition was a memorable experience that remains a highlight of my high school years. Often, we continue this tradition by inviting people who have little sedar experience to our sedar table and find that we enjoy teaching them what the heck is going on!

    My husband is a huge Grateful Dead fan so one year we set the Haggadah to some famous Dead tunes. A little out there but it was great fun particularly after the 4th cup of wine.

    The Plagues appear in different form each year. Sometimes as foods, children acting them out, a confetti of each item, etc. It’s fun to come up with something different each year.

    This year we decided to have a haroset contest. We have always made the same haroset since the days when I was a child. This year, we will divide into three teams and each one makes a different type of harosset. And then we are going to shape it into pyramids. We hope the children will enjoy participating.
    In the past we have grated our own horseradish right before we sit down for the seder. Everyone rolls up a sleeve and starts grating and everyone cries and passes the horseradish root to the next person. That’s empathy for the hardships our ancestors endured.

      I love this idea-The haroset contest and everyone getting in on grating their own horseradish with the understanding of the hardships of our ancestors. Thanks so much for sharing!
