  • The Santa Cruz Haggadah
  • was written and first published in 1991, named after the town in which Karen Roekard then lived and where its birth took place. It is now considered a classic. In addition to acknowledging the historical Exodus as do traditional haggadot, it is grounded on the ideas that it is up to us to heal the planet (Tikkun Olam) and also to free ourselves from whatever holds us back from being the best people we can be. In essence, it nurtures a very interactive seder that encourages personal liberation. It was the first (and may still be the only) haggadah to receive rabbinic support (haskamot) from prominent rabbis across the Judaic denominational landscape, from the late Chassidic leader, the Bostonner Rebbe, Reb Levi Yitzchak Horowitz z"l all the way to Reb Zalman Schachter Shalomi shlita, founder or the Jewish Renewal Movement.

    The Leader's Edition (this version) of The Santa Cruz Haggadah was originally the only version of this haggadah available. It is what the author considered to be "The Santa Cruz Haggadah." There now is an abbreviated version, the Participant's edition, that contains only the text of The Santa Cruz Haggadah. The Leader's version contains the complete text of The Santa Cruz Haggadah and more. It has 36 additional pages of questions and information that give the leader strength, knowledge and wisdom from the Chassidic and Kabbalistic traditions. The leader can then raise and answer questions that arise from a place of heart and not just head. The material on these pages are what get even the most estranged and/or recalcitrant participants to actually talk to each other, laugh with each other, which is why people usually describe seders that have used this haggadah as the most meaningful ones they've ever been to. This version also contains a 20-page Leader's Guide that provides everything you need to know to put on a seder and many ways to use this haggadah to do it. Finally, there is included a complete Hebrew haggadah included which makes this version "Kosher!" for any Orthodox attendees you may have. Using The Santa Cruz Haggadah as the text at seders, ensures that they will be deep, high and fun; meaningful, joyous and memorable for all who participate.
