Tenement Talks: Cokie and Steve Roberts on Uniting Traditions for Interfaith Families
Veteran journalists and bestselling authors Cokie and Steve Roberts will be at the Tenement Museum this evening discussing their book, Our Haggadah: Uniting Traditions for Interfaith Families, as part of the museum’s free Tenement Talks series. The book offers a personalized version of the Passover Haggadah—written especially for couples of mixed faiths—which combines their own traditions with favorites from others. Cokie, known for her work as a senior news analyst on NPR and ABC News, is Catholic; Steve, also a journalist and a Professor of Media and Public Affairs at George Washington University, is Jewish. Choosing to honor both of their faiths and traditions (throughout almost forty years of marriage), the couple hosts a Passover Seder that has evolved from a small family gathering to a veritable event celebrated with loved ones from all walks of life.
