Description: The people behind A Different Night, the Family Participation Haggadah, are two of the most creative and witty minds in Jewish publishing today. When they team up with Israeli illustrator Michel Kichka, we are treated to a truly different haggadah experience. A Night to Remember is billed as the haggadah of contemporary voices - everyone is here at the seder.
This haggadah has a full traditional text, but that is where tradition ends. The discussions will draw in the cynics, psychics and psalmist alike. There are great stories, activities and skits for the children. The adults will appreciate the reflections and discussions for the intellect, the poems and art for the senses. As an example, the Story of the Exodus is supplemented with the first-hand account by the Israeli pilot, Pini Nahmani's "seder" in a Syrian prison after being shot down over a Damascus suburb; the last Ethiopian seder in 1991, and Golda Meir's memorable hunger strike against the British in 1946. Add to this the hilarious original illustrations and the artwork by Mark Podwal and other contemporary artists, and you'll understand that this is like no other haggadah you have ever experienced.
Warning: This haggadah may be offensive to those who only want a very traditional-style seder. But for the rest of you, purchase a copy early. Sit back and enjoy!
