. . . than all other Hagaddas?
Depending on where you get your information, there are anywhere from 3,500 to 7,000 versions of the Passover Haggada out there. Scholarly Haggadahs, deep and meaningful Haggadahs, creative and original Haggadahs. And Maxwell House.
Nevertheless, I wasn’t satisfied with most of them.
We’ve been running public seders for over 20 years, and I believe a traditional seder should be tons of fun for everyone. For that to happen, the Haggadah needs to speak to me in plain English, keep things simple, and engage and entertain me. Even surprise me. They call it “edutainment.” At the same time, it has to be a traditional Haggada, following the same rules as the Haggadah my granddaddy used, and his granddaddy, too.
So finally, I got very excited when I saw Tzvi Freeman’s Haggadah this year, The Hyper-Modern Ancient With-It Traditional Haggadah. The structure of the Haggadah opened up to me in a way I hadn’t imagined. All the pieces fit together, everything found its place—in a way that translators had completely missed. The art was funky and contemporary and it looked cool!
We are bringing in a nice amount of these Haggadahs. If you would like reserve your copies, the cost is $18.99 a copy, it will make running the Seder a piece of cake (or Matzoh). We are ordering a limited amount, so reserve your Haggada asap by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
