Did you know that it’s a commandment to drink four glasses of wine over the course of the seder? Here’s a list (link: http://www.bcliquorstores.com/store/locator#listing_region_7 )of BC Liquor Stores on the Lower Mainland, so you can call ahead to ensure Kosher for Passover wines are still in stock. Most Kosher wines are also Kosher for Passover, look for this indicated under the hescher on the bottle. Great non-alcoholic alternatives can be found at Omnitsky, Sabra, and Pini’s (link all).
In Hebrew, seder means order, and at the heart of the seder is the Haggaddah, a Passover guidebook that spells out the order in which you and your family and friends can observe the traditions and add new ones.
Haggadot come in a wide variety of styles, representing many different traditions.
