What Your Haggadah Brings to the Table: Choosing the Right Haggadah
Four sons, four questions, unlimited answers. The seder is a time of freedom, and a time to celebrate that freedom. Which is why there’s a lot to discuss. Practically, this means that the seder often continues well into the night. As Jews, we mostly keep track of the Passover seder not with a clock, but with the haggadah which goes through each seder step, one by one.
The haggadah is the ultimate “how-to” manual for the seder. Put simply, it tells you what to do and when to do it. The style of haggadah that you choose will give you the seder experience you’re looking for.
The Haggadah (Hebrew for “telling”) tells the story of the Jewish Exodus from Egypt. It’s one of the ancient texts of our culture. A popular haggadah often used nowadays is the Sarajevo haggadah, a Sephardic book and the oldest known version of the text.
Some seders are better spent with everyone using the same haggadah, such as in school, with first time seder participants, or at a community seder. Those who are used to the seder year after year might enjoy bringing their own different haggadahs. In a diverse crowd, it might be a good idea to use two haggadahs at the seder, one to offer unique insights to the other seder participants, and one that is standard for the table, for everyone to follow along and be on the same page.
At Judaica.com we offer many types of haggadahs, in numerous styles: traditional, abridged, large print, child-friendly, kabbalistic insights, hard cover, soft cover, and so much more. You name it, we have it.
