The Best Haggadah Helpers

For those looking for additional help in planning or preparing for your seder, here are some last minute additions to the many suggested in Friday's Shabbat-O-Gram.

Recommended by scholar-in-residence Jay Michaelson: - contains oodles of supplementary materials on all parts of the Seder. This will help you to put together a seder to your liking. See for instance this timely topic, the Four Sons as "Glee" Characters.

See also Jay Michaelson's own take on that same subject.

I also highly recommend the Velveteen Rabbi's Haggadah for Pesach, which I used on Friday night. Chock full of contemporary creative readings for each part of the Seder.

Also, past TBE president Neil Perlman has once again updated his Passover Questions and Explanations, a comprehensive collections of questions - AND ANSWERS - related to the holiday. Simple and accessible, it is a wonderful gateway into the complexities of midrash and Jewish law and philosophy related to the holiday. With a 2011 update. Click here for the pdf
