Handmade Haggadah

Handmade Haggadah

Published by Ariana Katz
This haggadah was compiled from several different sources in an effort to tell a more round story of Passover: The Love and Justice haggadah, The Santa Cruz Haggadah, The Velveteen Rabbi’s Haggadah for Pesach, The Women’s Seder Sourcebook, B’kol Dor va’Dor: A Family Haggadah, and Rabbi Nathan Goldberg’s Haggadah Shel Pesach. The seders I love have each guest using a different haggadah, telling a different story. This haggadah pulls from different sources to tell a dynamic story and hopefully prompt a lively seder.
Quoting the Love and Justice Haggadah from which I drew heavily, “questions are not only welcome during the course of the evening but are vital to tonight’s journey. Our obligation at this seder involves traveling from slavery to freedom, prodding ourselves from apathy to action, encouraging the transformation of silence into speech, and providing a space where all different levels of belief and tradition can co-exist safely. Because leaving Mitzrayim- the narrow places, the places that oppress us- is a personal as well as a communal passage, your participation and thoughts are welcome and encourag!ed.” I was nowhere near able to include all the beautiful poems,
prayers, and stories I found while making this. This is certainly the first of many haggadot, so please forgive spelling errors, crowded pages, and confusing layout. This haggadah includes both the traditional prayers and order, and some modern interpretations of prayers. In particular is the consideration of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, something I think is most fitting when discussion the freedom of Exodus. This subject is emotional, and hopefully will be considered respectfully during the
seder. Also, the use of pronouns throughout the haggadah is inconsistent, a conscious decision. Male, female, and neutral pronouns all make an appearance, with no deference to any pronoun referring to God.

So for this seder: speak up! Shout, yell, sing, argue, drink, eat, drink three more times, and sing some more!

Hag sameach, happy Passover!

We begin this seder by welcoming each other, introducing ourselves by name and indicating pronoun preference. We say the shehecheyanu blessing to commemorate reaching a special
moment.

Ba-ruch ata adonai elohainu melech haolam, shehecheyanu v-keyamanu, v’higiyanu lazman hazeh.

Blessed are you, Ruler of the universe, who has kept us alive, sustained us, and enabled us to reach this moment.

The shehecheyanu prayer is used to mark special events in one’s life aswell as to make the arrival of festivals throught the year. We make this blessing tonight in honor of this special occasion—may there be many more to come. -Stephanie Aaron
