In this book Fredman deconstructs the images and symbols of the Passover seder and of Judaism in general. The problem is that she completely ignored all of the history that led to the creation of these symbols, assuming (in many cases incorrectly) that the symbolism is both the reason and end of each subject she discusses. She does have some interesting things to say, but they could certainly have been said in a much shorter space. She concentrates a lot on the difference between nature and culture, and how Judaism focuses on creating the latter.

The monograph The Passover Seder: Afikoman in Exile – An Anthropological Perspective on Jewish Culture (1980) established Ruth Fredman Cernea as a subtle interpreter of Jewish cultural and religious symbols, and of popular myths. She argued that the symbolism embedded in the Passover ritual expresses the political celebration of freedom and the cultural quest for purity.

Reviews about The Passover Seder (Symbol and Culture) (3):

The end of this book has some interesting observations about the Seder, such as her discussion of the Seder plate. She suggests that the Seder plate emphasizes the transformation of nature (e.g. wheat) into culture (e.g. matzoh), just as relevation turned Jews from ordinary homo sapiens into a holy people. But there was far too little discussion of the Seder and too much discussion of Judaism generally. Also, the author's discussion of Seder customs (and indeed of Judaism generally) focuses on the most traditional Jews, and thus fails to adequately describe the Seder as performed by the overwhelming majority of American Jews.

In this book Fredman deconstructs the images and symbols of the Passover seder and of Judaism in general. The problem is that she completely ignored all of the history that led to the creation of these symbols, assuming (in many cases incorrectly) that the symbolism is both the reason and end of each subject she discusses. She does have some interesting things to say, but they could certainly have been said in a much shorter space. She concentrates a lot on the difference between nature and culture, and how Judaism focuses on creating the latter.

Another issue is that the Judaism she deconstructs is the stereotype of a very traditional family. Even as an Orthodox Jew myself I found that I couldn't really relate to everything Gruber assumed was true. My feeling is that she's focusing on the stereotype of what Judaism was like in the late 19th century, however if that stereotype was ever true, it certainly isn't now for the vast majority of Jews.

As I said there are some interesting points, but they are few and far between. If you want to read it, I recommend starting about halfway through the book and ignoring the first half.

This is an excellent ethnographic study from a cultural anthropological perspective, not a historical discussion of Passover and its religious dimensions.
