    My parents got this as a gift from one of the authors, so I used it at the seder this year. The art is phenomenal and I loved every second I spent looking at and reading it. This is my new favorite haggadah for sure.

    This haggadah - nay, monumental piece of incredible labor and hard work - is quite beautiful - nay, gorgeous - deserving of its high ranking on Amazon, and will - by virtue of its elegance and arresting visuals - glue children to the seder table, and supplement nicely the 87 other Maxwell House Haggadahs lying around. It's also fully practical, brings me back to my comic-book-loving youth, and is filled not just with striking images, but emotional ones as well, and an added touch that is remarkab This haggadah - nay, monumental piece of incredible labor and hard work - is quite beautiful - nay, gorgeous - deserving of its high ranking on Amazon, and will - by virtue of its elegance and arresting visuals - glue children to the seder table, and supplement nicely the 87 other Maxwell House Haggadahs lying around. It's also fully practical, brings me back to my comic-book-loving youth, and is filled not just with striking images, but emotional ones as well, and an added touch that is remarkable is that many of the visual renditions of the text also include the midrashic interpretations of various passages. Chad Gadya is the exemplar creation in this work for me. Vehamayvin yavin: Excelsior!

    This is a beautiful haggadah. The comic illustrations add a wonderful commentary to the full, traditional text. Transliteration provides access to the songs and prayers for those who can’t read Hebrew comfortably. A great haggadah to us fr everyone at your seder or just for you.

    A Beautiful Passover Haggadah Graphic Novel Jordan B. Gorfinkel and Erez Zadok’s 2019 graphic Haggadah will delight parents and children. There are humorous comics explaining the Haggadah and Seder ceremonies in about half of the book’s 170 pages with the chad gadya, the Haggadah’s goat, explaining the Seder practices to his hungry impatient daughter.

There are humorous comics explaining the Haggadah and Seder ceremonies in about half of the book’s 170 pages with the chad gadya, the Haggadah’s goat, explaining the Seder practices to his hungry impatient daughter. At one point, when the vegetable karpas is served near the onset of the Seder, the goat’s daughter excitingly says, “Finally! Something to eat,” while her brother remarks more wisely, “Don’t get too excited, it is only veggies.” On another occasion, the goat’s son states, “On Passover our custom is to treat everyone as a king,” and his daughter objects, “You mean queen.” The book contains the full unabridged authentic text. Everything the family needs is in the book. There is the Hebrew, a transliteration into English letters, full instructions whenever a Seder ritual needs to be performed, and explanations of what is done, what is used, and what it signifies. When biblical verses are quoted the Haggadah gives the source. Sometimes an additional new explanation is added to the traditional one, such as the z’roa, shank bone, not only reminding the family of the Pascal lamb sacrificed on the holiday when the temple existed, but “it looks like an outstretched arm and signifies the eternal bond between us and God.” Also, the breaking of the middle matzah is not only explained that one piece is needed to eat when we begin the festive meal and the other piece is used in a game to keep the interest of the children awake, for they will hide it and get rewarded for returning it. The Haggadah adds, we break the matzah “as a people, we must be broken to be rebuilt.” Additionally, eating and drinking after the Seder is forbidden because “we want the tastes of liberation and unity to linger as long as possible.” There are drawings showing the ancient Israelite history, Egyptian slavery, the plagues, and much more. The drawings of the people show white and black Israelites in ancient times and today, and many men and boys today with yarmulkes, some without. The Haggadah is filled with clever ideas. When it speaks of God passing judgment on those who hurt Jews, it shows a drawing of the trial of Adolf Eichmann. When Genesis 15:13-14 is quoted “and then they will leave with great wealth,” the drawing is of a man in a tallit holding a baby who is being circumcised. The last page of the Haggadah contains one of the clever innovative ideas, a six-panel cartoon: “The Torah speaks of Four Types of Generations. One that is astute. One that is rebellious. One that is innocent. And one. One, One that will light the way.” The last, a grandmother showing her granddaughter how the candles are lit before the Shabbat.

    A recipe for a new haggadah: Take the traditional Hebrew text and add transliteration and translation. Wait, you say, that sounds like about 1,000 other haggadot. Ah, I’m not done yet: there are two more ingredients, ones that make this haggadah different from all other haggadot. Combine the previous ingredients with humorous pictorial presentations that explain what to do during a seder and awesome graphics of the story of the Exodus.

    I bought this in no small part because Amazon said it would arrive before Passover. But I was delighted by it. The Hebrew is well punctuated, the transliteration actually reads like what it sounds like in Hebrew, and the graphic novel images were surprisingly moving. The images were gender- and racially inclusive, diverse, and emotionally powerful.

    The illustrations served to tell the story, alongside the actual text of the haggadah. Some panels were so moving that I was brought to tears. Very worthwhile!

    GENIUS! What a great way to engage kids (and adults!) in reading the haggadah. This beautiful offering has just given the seder a boost. I can't wait for Pesach. GENIUS!

    Due to coronavirus and the shutdown, we had to have our seder at home on our own and so we needed a Haggadah. Since my husband and I love comic books, when I saw this I had to get it. It's great. We love the artwork and the connections to modern day. I especially like the cover showing a variety of people of different ages and from different eras walking through the parting of the Red Sea. For someone more used to the 30 minute Seder, this is a serious Haggadah.

I especially like the cover showing a variety of people of different ages and from different eras walking through the parting of the Red Sea. For someone more used to the 30 minute Seder, this is a serious Haggadah. With a not yet two year old, we stuck more to the highlights, but we'll do more as the years go by. It has English, Hebrew, and the transliteration, but at times, the English is in the graphic part, which threw me off a bit, but that was more because of the flipping through and I imagine won't be much of an issue reading it straight through.

    Fabulously done! Really clear print of all the traditional text, super clear instructions, and a full translation of the text, often preferring the sense of the phrases rather than word for word. The English translation is usually part of the graphic representation of what is going on, so follows the authors' interpretation. Every paragraph gets its own spread, allowing some sections that don't normally to get full focus. My 8yo took it for the seder, but I read it from cover to cover the next da Fabulously done! Really clear print of all the traditional text, super clear instructions, and a full translation of the text, often preferring the sense of the phrases rather than word for word. The English translation is usually part of the graphic representation of what is going on, so follows the authors' interpretation. Every paragraph gets its own spread, allowing some sections that don't normally to get full focus. My 8yo took it for the seder, but I read it from cover to cover the next day, and enjoyed it thoroughly. While it has plenty of imagery drawing parallels to 20th century atrocities, these do not show the violence in full, making it far more suitable for children than the graphic haggada of about 20 years ago that revelled in portraying horrific violence in full. This one is more a game for the student of history, to find all the references.
