Haggadot

 

Mishkan HaSeder: A Passover Haggadah

Combining age-old texts, fresh insights, inspiring poetry, new translations, and breathtaking art, Mishkan HaSeder sets a new standard in Passover Haggadot. Using the beloved format of Mishkan T'filah and Mishkan HaNefesh, this Haggadah offers beautiful new translations by Rabbis Janet and Sheldon Marder in conversation with an extraordinary collection of poetry from a diverse array of poets.

Mishkan HaSeder: Available from CCAR Press or Kindle

 

Sharing the Journey: The Haggadah for the Contemporary Family

Passover is the Jewish holiday that typically generates many wonderful family memories and experiences. Sharing the Journey is written to help all members of the contemporary Jewish family create a joyous and inspirational Passover experience.

MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger - 5782 Hunger Seder (PDF)

Inspired by Jewish values and ideals, MAZON is a national advocacy organization working to end hunger among people of all faiths and backgrounds in the United States and Israel. MAZON was the first national
organization to rally the American Jewish community around the issue of hunger, and remains the only national Jewish organization dedicated exclusively to that same cause.

For Passover resources, including a Fifth Question Haggadah insert and action steps you can take now, please visit mazon.org/passover.

 

Kar-Ben Publishing: A Family Haggadah

A Family Haggadah I includes more songs appropriate  for young children, including Let My People Go, The Frog Song and a short version of Birkat Hamazon.

A Family Haggadah II has more detail in telling of the Passover story, the complete Birkat Hamazon and the ritual for Miriam’s Cup is included.

The My Very Own Haggadah is a great supplement for children in addition to whatever Haggadah your family uses. It is also a coloring book, a terrific way to occupy squirmy little people during a seder.

 

The Passover Haggadah Graphic Novel

The Passover Haggadah Graphic Novel integrates a brand-new translation directly into the art, immersing every generation in the timeless celebration of Pesach. The graphic novel pages are presented alongside the complete Seder text, in Hebrew and transliteration, and accompanied by instructional cartoons depicting all of the rituals.

A landmark creation of veteran Batman editor and JewishCartoon.com creator Jordan B. Gorfinkel and Israeli illustrator and visionary Erez Zadok, this super-Haggadah breathes new life into the holiday’s universal themes of freedom, memory and faith — recasting the Pesach festival as contemporary, cool and fun.

Use it at the Seder table or read it for pleasure!  Available for purchase on Amazon here.
