BOSTON, April 3, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JewishBoston.com, the premier website for all things Jewish in Boston, today announced a new interactive Haggadah mobile app for Passover. Passover is about exploring the story of the Jews' exodus from Egypt, asking questions, and sharing the experience with others, which is why JewishBoston.com, a program of Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP), created a free interactive Haggadah mobile app.
It's a brand-new way to experience the Passover seder, with no books required. Through this modern version of a traditional Haggadah, JewishBoston.com is engaging and connecting people, specifically children and young adults, with technology this Passover season.
"There isn't just one right way to do Passover, and our Haggadah mobile app enables young adults to create their own modern versions of the holiday," said Kali Brodsky, editor at JewishBoston.com. "We are most excited about some of the special features, including discussion questions and modern takes on classic seder elements, a detailed Leader's Guide to help people host a seder, new versions of classic songs, and the ability to save and share content instantly with friends."
The interactive app features:
- Fun Passover-themed conversation starters
- Audio and lyrics for five traditional Passover songs
- Leader's Guide for hosting a seder
- Ability to clip, save and instantly share content with friends
The app is available in the Apple App Store, the Google Play Store and the Amazon Kindle Fire Store. Please visit www.jewishboston.com/passover/haggadah for direct download links.
