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.

A prayer to be recited upon donating blood. In Israel, there are major blood drives around the times of Rosh Hashana and Pesaḥ, so the prayer borrows themes from both of those holidays. It emphasizes both the tzedaka aspect of blood donation and the ancient symbolic resonances of blood sacrifice.

The shift is not just about going electronic. It is about how the electronic form of the siddur is allowing for new theological functions. Like religious authority, where digital media can be used to either reinforce traditional forms or open up new landscapes for alternative visions of leadership, the Internet also offers both possibilities regarding [...]

מקורו של ראש השנה לבעלי־חיים הוא באותה משנה שבה המקור לט”ו בשבט:

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 [...]
