The Shakespeare Haggadah: Elevate Thy Seder with the Bard of Avon (Second Folio)


It be the Passover Haggadah, as Shakespeare would hast writ it, hadst the idea occurred to him.

Art thee a teenager? Most wondrous. How about a tweenager? Coequal better. Perhaps thou art a drossy adolescent or gamesome adult? Readeth this while the stodgy elders and fartuous children readeth the haggadot, catered only to those folk—until now.

Thou canst useth this as an actual Haggadah too, as the full Hebrew text be on the left, and Shakespeare’s rendering be on the right. So it readeth right, which sounds like it should beest the opposite, but it be not as confusing as thou mayest thinketh.

“Hi, I’m Dave Cowen, the author of four other Haggagahs. So trust me when I say that Martin, who is also the author of four other Haggadahs, knows how to write good ones, too! I’m not a Shakespearean scholar but I am a spiritual humorist, and it feels like Martin nailed that part of the equation quite well, like he did with the Emoji Haggadah, the Festivus Haggadah, and the Coronavirus Haggadah. 5 stars!”

–Dave Cowen, author of The Trump Passover Haggadah
