Waskow, who was a contributing editor to Ramparts magazine, sought to accentuate the liberatory themes of Passover in light of the Civil Rights Movement. From the preface: "One of my earliest and warmest memories is that of my father reciting the Dayenu, the chant of rebellion, liberation, travail, and the creation of a new law that is the story of Passover. One of my latest and warmest memories is that of working with my wife and children to make of our own Passover Seder something that would speak to our deep concerns about our selves and our world. Our efforts became sharper and more urgent in 1968, when the Passover came one bare week after the murder of Martin Luther King, the April uprising of black Washington against the blank-eyed pyramid-builders of our own time, and the military occupation of our city.

And then we realized that in 1969, the third night of Passover, April 4, would be the first anniversary of King's death. Facing those dates, we found our deepest feelings best expressed in a fusion of the traditional Seder with a new song of freedom-both the freedom of men in relation to each other and the freedom of men in relation to God...
