Celebrating Passover when Your Child Has Food Allergies

March 2009

Celebrating Passover with Food Allergies

Seder with Food Allergies
The "KFA Celebrates Passover" booklet has been designed to be a companion for any Haggadah that your family uses for the Passover Seder. In addition, the booklet is meant to help all those who celebrate Passover to fulfill the traditions within the Seder. We here at KFA encourage you to do the best you can during this holiday and hope that we can help in that goal. We understand that Pikuach Nefesh, which is avoiding the endangerment of one’s life, is more important than fulfilling the traditions on Passover. Some aspects of parenting a food allergic child leave you with no control over the situation; examples would be contact allergies and/or if your child required a formula-only diet. We hope this brochure helps you to still be able to have a fun and spiritually fulfilling Passover.
