פסח | The Plotke Family Haggadah

Image: Barley Field by net_efekt (License: CC-BY 2.0)

DOWNLOAD: FONTS | ODT | PDF

Update: I have extensively edited this free Haggadah since last year. New to this version are hundreds of corrections, the inclusion of only fonts which can be legally redistributed, and a wider layout intended for legal size paper.

A Chabad Haggadah, based on the Rebbe’s Haggadah, made for my family. I began work on this Haggadah many years ago, when there wasn’t this glut of Chabad Haggadahs that currently saturates the market. Still, I think this is a valuable contribution in that it provides the complete Hebrew text and translation for free, in every sense of the word.

If you want to work on the Haggadah, you should first install the fonts, then open the odt in LibreOffice (version 3.6.4). This is the only method (almost) certain to work.

Long ago there came a Ḥassid, visiting from Vitebsk to see his Rebbe.

Struggling up hills, over cobblestones, through narrow alleyways, the Ḥassid came panting, shaking, to the door of a pale and quiet synagogue.

So pale, so quiet was this shul that the pastel paintings on the wall and ceiling stood out as though [...]

Bring our soldiers home from the battlefields, alive and unharmed

This is pre-Shabbos reflection that can be done in a shower or bath. Shabbat is a time when I am less focused on my selfish desires and instead my thoughts drift to my place in the larger community and world. I find myself doing some version of this before Shabbos most weeks and am welcome [...]

Lord, our God, bring us days of good, of mercy, of life and of peace.
Give our leaders the capability to see the natural sanctity embedded in every person.
Give us the ability to trust human beings fighting for their way, for their lives–for our lives.
Lord, lay us down along Your path–a path for [...]

God of Life

For you did not create us to kill each other
Nor to live in fear, anger or hatred in your world
But rather you have created us so we can grant [...]
