Why did I go through the bother of writing a new Haggadah? Certainly hundreds, and perhaps thousands, exist and are available. Why did I undertake this task? My family and my extended family of friends, colleagues, and neighbors have told me in a quiet aside that they and their families dislike their current Haggadah. The character of the American Jewish family seems to have changed a bit, and there didn t seem to be any Haggadahs that met our collective needs. Who is this group of people who are dissatisfied with the current crop of Haggadahs? What are our needs? We are American Jews with modest Jewish knowledge, but with strong ties to Judaism. We celebrate the holidays, at least some of them, to some extent. Our family members have married, divorced, and are now populated with Jews like themselves and with many Gentiles who are part of their family. Where is the Haggadah for such a family? Passover is a universal holiday and has meaning to all people; but many of the participants in a Seder simply do not have the knowledge or interest to follow rote procedures that have been changed by knowledgeable Jewish scholars and rabbis over time. But these Jewish-American families want to have a Seder service that follows the traditions of Jews throughout the world, but has meaning for them in their lives, in this country, at this time. So, I took it upon myself to write a Haggadah that would meet our needs. This Haggadah will not meet the needs of Orthodox or Conservative Jews; in fact, they would consider this Haggadah almost hilarious. This Haggadah was specifically written to try to bring the concepts and meanings of the Passover holiday to people with very little or no detailed knowledge of Jewish ritual, Jewish traditions, Jewish procedures, and of course, no knowledge of Hebrew.
