Each of David’s interviewees has chosen a different guest to invite to their seder. They range from the globally famous to unsung heroes who have played a lasting and significant role in their family’s life and journey.

“Guess who is coming for Seder” is an audio podcast series whose aim is to honour, celebrate and remind ourselves just how much Seder means to us all and its importance in the continuing story of the Jewish People.

The podcast series is available via the Anu website, Spotify, Apple podcasts (just search for Guess who is coming for Seder or from www.mysederguest.com

The series was conceived by David Roth from London UK who hosts the series. Business man, author and broadcaster.

David Roth said: “Passovers focal point, the home Seder service, has been an integral part of Jewish continuity and Jewish family life. Inviting guests for Seder is a tradition that goes back as long as the seder itself. You will be enthralled by the conversations of each interview, getting to know them and why they have invited the guests.”

Dan Tadmor, CEO ANU, Museum of the Jewish People, Tel Aviv said: “ We are delighted to be a partner in this project. Through the twists and turns of Jewish history including the bright and dark days, the celebration of the Seder as a family event has been central to Jewish Identity and continuity. The range of interviewees that participated in this podcast series and the guest they talk about inviting to their seder is remarkable and a reflection of the contribution the Jewish story has made to the world.”
