Let any fermentation or leaven in my possession that I have not noticed and have not eliminated be nullified and become as the dust of the earth.

בִּיעוּר חָמֵץ

By means of this “mingling,” let it be permissible for us to bake, cook, insulate hot foods, transfer fire, and tend to all our needs during the festival for the Sabbath—for us and for all who reside in this city.

(Recite quietly:) And there was evening and there was morning,
(recite aloud:) the sixth day.
The heavens and the earth and all their array were completed.
On the seventh day, God completed the work that He had done, and God rested on the seventh day from all His labor that He had done.
And God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, for on it He rested from all the labor of creation that God had done.[1]Genesis 1:31-2:3

(Uncover the matzot , lift the egg and shank bone, and recite:)
 
This is the bread of poverty
that our ancestors ate
in the land of Egypt.
Let all who are hungry
come and eat!
Let all who are needy
come and partake of the Passover offering!
Now, we are here;
next year, may we be in the land of Israel.
Now, we are slaves;
next year, may we be free.

(The youngest person present who is able recites:)
 
How different this night is
from all other nights!
On all other nights,
we eat
both leavened bread and matzah.
On this night,
[we eat] only matzah.
On all other nights,
we eat
all kinds of herbs.
On this night,
[we eat] bitter herbs.
On all other nights,
we do not dip our food
even once.
On this night,
we dip twice.
On all other nights,
we eat
either sitting or reclining.
On this night,
we all recline.
 
(Keep the matzah uncovered through the next part of the seder. It is appropriate to read and discuss this portion of the Haggadah in a language that those present understand.)

We were slaves
to Pharaoh in Egypt,
and Adonai, our God, brought us out from there
with a strong hand
and an outstretched arm.
If
the blessed Holy One had not brought
our ancestors
out of Egypt,
then we,
our children,
and our children’s children
would still be enslaved (some add: to Pharaoh)
in Egypt.
Therefore,
even if we were all wise,
all insightful,
all elders,
and all knowledgeable in the Torah,
we would still be commanded
to discuss the exodus from Egypt.
Moreover, one who elaborates
on the exodus from Egypt
is worthy of praise.

קְרִיאַת שְׁמַע שֶׁל שַׁחֲרִית׃
A tale is told
of Rabbi Eliezer,
Rabbi Joshua,
Rabbi Elazar son of Azariah,
Rabbi Akiva,
and Rabbi Tarfon,
who held a seder [lit: reclined] in Bnai Brak.
They discussed the exodus from Egypt
all that night,
until their students came
and said to them,
“Rabbis,
the time has come
to recite the morning shema.”

אָמַר רַבִּי אֶלְעָזָר בֶּן עֲזַרְיָה.
הֲרֵי אֲנִי כְּבֶן שִׁבְעִים שָׁנָה.
וְלֹא זָכִיתִי

יְמֵי חַיֶּיךָ,
הָעוֹלָם הַזֶּה.
כֹּל יְמֵי חַיֶּיךָ,
לְהָבִיא לִימוֹת הַמָּשִׁיחַ׃
Rabbi Elazar son of Azariah said:
I am about seventy years old,
but I did not understand
why the exodus from Egypt is recalled
at night [or: I did not know that the exodus from Egypt must be recalled at night] 
until Ben Zoma explained:
The Torah says,
“. . . so that you remember the day of your exodus from Egypt all the days of your life.”[2]Deut. 16:50
If it had said merely, “the days of your life,”
it would have meant only the days.
However, because it says “all the days of your life,”
it includes the nights as well.
The sages interpret the verse differently:
“The days of your life”
would have referred to this era only.
“All the days of your life”
includes the messianic era as well.

בָּרוּךְ הַמָּקוֹם
בָּרוּךְ הוּא.
בָּרוּךְ שֶׁנָּתַן תּוֹרָה לְעַמּוֹ יִשְׂרָאֵל.

Blessed is the Omnipresent;
Blessed is He.
Blessed is the One Who gave the Torah to His people Israel;
Blessed is He.

כְּנֶגֶד אַרְבָּעָה בָנִים דִּבְּרָה תוֹרָה.
אֶחָד חָכָם.
וְאֶחָד רָשָׁע.
וְאֶחָד תָּם.
וְאֶחָד שֶׁאֵינוֹ יוֹדֵעַ לִשְׁאוֹל׃
The Torah teaches of four children:
A wise one,
a wicked one,
a simple-minded one,
and one who does not know enough to ask.

חָכָם מַה הוּא אוֹמֵר
מָ֣ה הָעֵדֹ֗ת וְהַֽחֻקִּים֙ וְהַמִּשְׁפָּטִ֔ים אֲשֶׁ֥ר צִוָּ֛ה יְהוָ֥ה אֱלֹהֵ֖ינוּ אֶתְכֶֽם

כְּהִלְכוֹת הַפֶּסַח
אֵין מַפְטִירִין
אַחַר הַפֶּסַח
אֲפִיקוֹמֵן׃
What does the wise one say?
“What are the testimonies, laws, and statutes that the Lord, our God, commanded us [you]?”[3]Deut. 6:20
You shall teach him
the laws of Passover [down to the very last law in the mishnah:] 
One may not follow
the Paschal offering
with entertainment.

רָשָׁע מַה הוּא אוֹמֵר
מָ֛ה הָעֲבֹדָ֥ה הַזֹּ֖את לָכֶֽם

לִי וְלֹא לוֹ.
אִלּוּ הָיָה שָׁם.
לֹא הָיָה נִגְאָל׃
What does the wicked one say?
“What is this service to you?”[4]Exod. 12:26
He refers to “you”
rather than to himself.
Because
he excludes himself from the group
and rejects a fundamental principle,
you must
set his teeth on edge
and say to him:
“It is because of what Adonai did for me when I left Egypt.” [5]Exod. 13:8
You refer to yourself (“to me”) rather than to him,
because if he had been there,
he would not have been redeemed.

תָּם מַה הוּא אוֹמֵר
מַה־זֹּ֑את
וְאָמַרְתָּ אֵלָיו
בְּחֹזֶק יָד
הוֹצִיאָנוּ יְיָ מִמִּצְרַיִם
מִבֵּית עֲבָדִים׃
What does the simple-minded one say?
“What is this?”[6]Exod. 13:14
You shall say to him:
“With a strong hand,
Adonai brought us out of Egypt,
the house of bondage.”

וְשֶׁאֵינוֹ יוֹדֵעַ לִשְׁאוֹל
אַתָּה פְּתַח לוֹ.
שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר
בַּעֲב֣וּר זֶ֗ה עָשָׂ֤ה יְהוָה֙ לִ֔י בְּצֵאתִ֖י מִמִּצְרָֽיִם
And as for the one who does not know enough to ask,
you should open the discussion for him,
as the Torah says:
“It is because of what Adonai did for me when I left Egypt.”[7]Exod. 13:8

יָכוֹל מֵרֹאשׁ חֹדֶשׁ.
תַּלְמוּד לוֹמַר
בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא.
אִי בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא
יָכוֹל מִבְּעוֹד יוֹם.
תַּלְמוּד לוֹמַר
בַּעֲבוּר זֶה.
בַּעֲבוּר זֶה לֹא אָמַרְתִּי.
אֶלָּא בְּשָׁעָה
שֶׁיֵּשׁ מַצָּה וּמָרו‌͏ֹר
מֻנָּחִים לְפָנֶיךָ׃
One might have thought that [the commandment to discuss the exodus could be fulfilled from at any time] from the first of the month [of Nisan, onward].
Therefore, we need the words
“on that day”[8]Exodus 13:8 [to teach us that the commandment applies to the specific day on which the Exodus took place, that is, the fifteenth of Nisan.] But [based on the phrase] “on that day” [alone],
one might have thought that [the commandment could be fulfilled] during the day [of the fourteenth.] Therefore, we need the words
“because of this.”
You could not say “because of this”
at any time other than [the Seder night,] when matzah and maror
lie before you, [since the term “this” must refer to something in the speaker’s presence].

מִתְּחִלָּה

In the beginning,
our ancestors were worshippers of foreign gods,
but now
the Omnipresent has drawn us to His service,
as scripture relates:
“And Joshua said to all the people, ‘Thus said Adonai, the God of Israel: Your ancestors dwelled beyond the river from time immemorial – Teraḥ, father of Abraham and father of Naḥor – and they worshiped other gods.
I took your ancestor Abraham from the other side of the river, and I led him through the whole land of Canaan, and I multiplied his descendents, and I gave him Isaac. And I gave Isaac Jacob and Esau. And I gave Esau Mount Seir to inherit, and Jacob and his sons went down to Egypt.”[9]Joshua 24:2-4

Blessed be the One who keeps His promise to Israel,
blessed be He.
For the blessed Holy One
premeditated the end [of Israel’s enslavement],
and fulfilled that which He foretold
to our ancestor Abraham
in the covenant between the pieces,
as scripture relates:
“And He said to Abraham: ‘Know with certainty that your descendents will be strangers in a land not their own, and they shall serve its inhabitants, who will afflict them for four hundred years. But I will also judge the nation that they serve, and afterward they will leave with great wealth.”[10]Gen. 15:13-14

(Cover the matzot, raise the cup and recite:)
 
That which stood for our ancestors applies to us as well.
For it was not only one individual
who stood up against us to destroy us.
Rather,
in every generation
they stand up against us to destroy us.
But the blessed Holy One
redeems us from their hands.
 
(Put down the cup, uncover the matsot, and continue.)

Go forth and learn
what Lavan the Aramean
sought to do to Jacob, our ancestor.
While Pharaoh only decreed
[death] for the males,
Lavan sought
to uproot everything,
as scripture relates:
“An Aramean [Laban] sought to destroy my father [Jacob]. He [Jacob] went down to Egypt and sojourned there, few in number, and there he became a great, mighty, and populous nation.”[11]Deut. 26:5

וַיֵּ֣רֶד מִצְרַ֔יְמָה.
אָנוּס עַל פִּי הַדִּבּוּר׃
“He went down to Egypt:”
He was compelled by the word [of God].

“And he sojourned there:”
This teaches
that Yaakov did not go down
to settle in Egypt,
but rather to sojourn there,
as scripture relates:
“They said to Pharaoh, ‘We have come to sojourn in the land, for there is no pasture for the flocks of your servants, for the famine is severe in the land of Canaan. Now, therefore, let your servants dwell in the land of Goshen.’”[12]Genesis 47:4

“Few in number:”
As scripture relates:
“When your ancestors went down to Egypt there were seventy of them, and now Adonai, your God, has made you as numerous as the stars in the heavens.”[13]Deut. 10:22

וַֽיְהִי־שָׁ֕ם לְג֥וֹי גָּד֖וֹל.

“And populous:”
As scripture relates:

“The Egyptians vilified us:”
As scripture relates:
[Pharaoh said,] “Come, let us deal wisely with them, lest they multiply and join our enemies when war comes, and fight against us, and leave the land.”[17]Exodus 1:10

As scripture relates:
“The Egyptians worked the Israelites severely.”[19]Exodus 1:13

וַנִּצְעַ֕ק אֶל־יְהוָ֖ה אֱלֹהֵ֣י אֲבֹתֵ֑ינוּ וַיִּשְׁמַ֤ע יְהוָה֙ אֶת־קֹלֵ֔נוּ וַיַּ֧רְא אֶת־עׇנְיֵ֛נוּ וְאֶת־עֲמָלֵ֖נוּ וְאֶת־לַחֲצֵֽנוּ׃

“We cried out to Adonai, God of our ancestors:”
As scripture relates:
“Eventually, the king of Egypt died, and the Israelites sighed from their labor and cried out, and their plea for rescue from their labor reached God.”[21]Exodus 2:23

“And Adonai brought us out of Egypt with a strong hand and an outstretched arm and with great fearsomeness, and with signs and wonders.”[26]Deut. 26:8

“And Adonai brought us out of Egypt:”
Not by an angel
and not by a Saraf [fiery angel],
and not by a messenger,
but the blessed Holy One
Himself, in His Glory,
as scripture relates:
[God said,] “I will pass through the land of Egypt tonight, and I will smite every firstborn in the land of Egypt, from man to beast. And I will execute judgment against all the gods of Egypt. I am Adonai.”[27]Exodus 12:12

I, and not an angel.
“and I will smite every firstborn:”
I, and not a fiery angel.
“And I will execute judgment against all the gods of Egypt:”
I, and not the messenger.

And with regard to the sea
it says:
“And Israel saw the great hand of Adonai’s deeds in Egypt, and the people feared Adonai, and they had faith in Adonai and in his servant Moses.”[34]Exodus 14:31
If with one finger
they were afflicted
with ten plagues,
then in Egypt they were afflicted
with ten plagues
and at the sea they were afflicted
with fifty plagues.

Rabban Gamliel would say:
Anyone who does not mention
these three things
on Passover
does not fulfill his obligation,
and these are they:
the Passover offering,
the matsah,
and the bitter herbs.

פֶּסַח
שֶׁהָיוּ אֲבוֹתֵינוּ אוֹכְלִים
בַּזְּמַן שֶׁבֵּית הַמִּקְדָּשׁ קַיָּם.

The Passover offering
that our ancestors would eat
at the time that temple stood,
what does it represent?
It recalls
how the blessed Holy One passed over
the houses of our ancestors in Egypt,
as scripture relates:
“You shall say, ‘This is a Passover sacrifice to Adonai, who passed over the houses of the Israelites in Egypt when he smote Egypt and spared our houses.’ And the people bowed low.”[37]Exodus 12:27

מַצָּה זוּ

The matzah
that we eat,
what does it represent?
It recalls
that our ancestors’ dough did not have time
to rise
before
Sovereign of Sovereigns,
the blessed Holy One was revealed to them
and redeemed them.
As scripture relates:
“They baked the dough that they brought out of Egypt into loaves of matzah because it did not rise, because they were thrown out of Egypt and they were not able to wait; neither did they prepare provisions for themselves.”[38]Exodus 12:39

מָרוֹר זֶה

The bitter herbs
that we eat,
what do they represent?
They recall
how the Egyptians
embittered the lives of our ancestors
in Egypt,
as scripture relates:
“And the Egyptians embittered their lives with hard labor in mortar and bricks, and with all sorts of labor in the field – all their labor that they set upon them was brutal.”[39]Exodus 1:14

בְּכָׇל דּוֹר וָדוֹר

In every generation
one must
view oneself
as though one had personally left Egypt,
as scripture instructs:
“And you shall say to your child on that day, ‘This is because of what the Lord did for me when I left Egypt.’”[40]Exodus 13:8
It was not only our ancestors
that the blessed Holy One redeemed.
Rather,
even we
were redeemed with them,
as scripture says:
“And he brought us out of there in order to bring us to and give us the land that he promised to our ancestors.”[41]Deut 6:23

exalt,

and worship
the One who performed
for our ancestors and for us
all these miracles.
He brought us

from anguish to joy,
from mourning to festivity,
from darkness to great light,
and from subjugation to redemption.
We shall therefore sing before Him
(some add: a new song).
Hallelu-Yah!

Praise Yah!
Praise, servants of Adonai —
Praise the name of Adonai!
May the name of Adonai be blessed
forever and ever.
From the rising of the sun to its setting
the name of Adonai is praised.
Adonai is exalted above all the nations
His glory is over the heavens.
Who is like Adonai, our God,
(whose throne is so high,)
who humbles Himself to see
the heavens and the earth?
He raises the poor from the dust,
lifting the destitute out of the refuse,
to seat them among nobles,
among the nobles of (His) people.
He makes the barren woman of the house
the happy mother of children.
Praise Yah![42]Psalms 113

When Israel left Egypt,
the house of Jacob from a foreign land,
Judah became His holy one,
Israel His dominion.
The sea saw and fled,
the Jordan turned back!
The mountains danced like rams,
the hills like lambs!
Why is it, Sea, that you flee,
Jordan, that you turn back?
Mountains, that you dance like rams,
Hills, like lambs?
It is from before the Lord that the land writhes,
before the God of Jacob!
He turns the rock into a pool of water,
flint into a spring of water.[43]Psalms 114

Likewise

to other holidays and festivals
that await us in peace,
with happiness at the building of Your city
and joy in Your service.
There may we eat
of the sacrifices
and of the Passover offerings,
and may their blood reach
the walls of Your altar
with Your favor.
Then we will sing to You a new song
about our redemption
and the rescue of our lives.
Blessed are You, Adonai,

(Take the three matzot, holding the broken one between the two whole ones, and hold them while reciting the following two blessings. Have in mind that the hamotzi blessing refers to the top matzah and the “al achilat matzah” blessing refers to the broken one. After reciting the two blessings, take a “kezayit”-sized piece of the top matzah and a “kezayit”-sized piece of the middle matzah, dip them in salt, and eat both pieces together. If you can’t fit both in your mouth, eat the one from the top matzah first and the one from the broken matzah second.)

A song of ascents:
When Adonai returned the remnant of Zion,
we were like dreamers.
At that time, our mouths were filled with laughter
and cries of joy were on our tongues.
The nations said: “Adonai did great things for these!”
Adonai did great things for us, and we were happy.
Return, Adonai, our remnant
like springs in the Negev.
Those who plant in tears
will reap in joy.
The one who carries the trail of seed goes weeping,
but the one who carries his bundle of grain returns in joy.[45]Psalm 126

For everything,
Adonai, our God,
we thank You
and bless You.
May Your name be blessed in the mouth of every living being
always, forever and ever!
As scripture says:
“You will eat and be satisfied, and you will bless
Adonai your God for the good land that He gave you.”[46]Deut. 8:10
Blessed are You, Adonai,
for the land
and for the food.

Take favor in Your commandments, Adonai, our God, and help us fulfill them,
particularly the commandment of the seventh day,
this great and holy Sabbath.
For it is
a great and holy day before You

in accordance with the commandments
in which you take favor.
May it be Your will,
Adonai, our God,
that we be spared from distress,
suffering,

Allow us to see,
Adonai, our God,
the comforting of Zion, Your city,

For You are
Master of Salvation

Not for us, Adonai, not for us, but to give glory to Your Name for Your kindness and for Your faithfulness. Why should the nations say, “Where is their God?” When our God is in heaven— He does whatever He pleases! Their idols are silver and gold, the work of human hands. They have mouths, but they cannot speak. They have eyes, but they cannot see. They have ears, but they cannot hear. They have noses, but they cannot smell. Their hands cannot feel. Their legs cannot walk. They cannot speak with their throats. May their makers be like them— all who trust in them. Israel trusts in Adonai; He is their Helper and Guardian. The family of Aaron trusts in Adonai; Those who fear Adonai trust in Adonai;[56]Psalms 115:1-11 Adonai, remember us! May He bless the family of Israel. May He bless the family of Aaron. May He bless those who fear Adonai, The small along with the great. May Adonai grant you abundance, you and your children. May you be blessed to Adonai, Maker of heaven and earth. The heavens are the heavens of Adonai and the land was given to humanity. The dead cannot praise Yah, nor can those who go down into silence. But we will praise Yah from now to eternity. Praise Yah![57]Psalms 115:12-18

I loved when Adonai heard my voice when I pleaded. For He inclined His ear to me and in my days I cried out. The ropes of death entangled me; the afflictions of the underworld came upon me; I met with affliction and suffering. I called out to Adonai: Please, Adonai, save my life! Adonai is gracious and righteous and our God is merciful. Adonai protects the simple. I was brought low, and He saved me. Be at rest again, my soul, for Adonai has been beneficent to you. For You have delivered me from death, my eyes from tears, my legs from weariness. I walk before Adonai in the land of the living! I believed when I spoke; I was greatly afflicted. I said rashly, “‘All people are deceitful.”[58]Psalm 116:1-11 How can I repay Adonai for all the beneficence He has shown me? I raise a cup of salvation and call out in the name of Adonai. I will fulfill my vows to Adonai in the presence of all His people. The death of his faithful ones is grievous in the eyes of Adonai. O Adonai, I am Your servant. I am your servant, son of your maidservant. You have released my bonds. I will slaughter a thanksgiving sacrifice to You and call out in the name of Adonai. I will fulfill my vows to Adonai in the presence of all His people, in the courtyards of the temple of Adonai in Jerusalem. Praise Yah![59]Psalms 116:12-19

Give thanks to Adonai, for He is good, for His kindness is everlasting. Israel says: The family of Aaron says: Those who fear Adonai say:[61]Psalm 118:1-4 From the straights I call to Yah, Yah answers me in His broadness. Adonai, I do not fear for myself— what can a mortal do to me? When Adonai is with me as my helper, I will see [the fall of] my enemies. It is better to seek refuge in Adonai than to trust in mortals. It is better to seek refuge in Adonai than to trust in nobles. All nations surround me— by the name of Adonai I will cut them down. They surround me and encircle me— by the name of Adonai I will cut them down. They surround me like bees— they will be extinguished like burning thorns. They pressed upon me to fell me, but Adonai helped me. Adonai is my strength and my might and He will be my salvation. The sound of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents of the righteous. The right hand of Adonai acts valorously. The right hand of Adonai is exalted, the right hand of Adonai acts valorously. I will not die. I will live and will tell of the deeds of Yah. Yah has punished me severely, but He has not given me over to death. Open for me, gates of righteousness! I will come through and offer thanks to Yah. This is the gate of Adonai. The righteous will come through it.[62]Psalm 118:5-20 I thank You, for You answered me and were my salvation. The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. This has come from Adonai— it is wondrous in our eyes. This is the day that Adonai made for us. We will rejoice and be happy on it.[63]Psalm 118:21-24 Please, Adonai, save! Please, Adonai, bring success![64]Psalm 118:25 Blessed be the one who comes in the name of Adonai. We bless you from the temple of Adonai. Adonai is God and He gives us light. Bind a festival offering in cords to the horns of the altar. You are my God and I thank You. You are my God and I exalt You. Praise Adonai, for He is good, for His kindness is eternal.[65]Psalm 118:26-29

May You be praised, Adonai, our God, all Your deeds.

For it is good to praise You and pleasing to sing to Your name, for You are God forever and ever.

The breath of all life praises Your name, Adonai, our God, and the spirit of all flesh glorifies and exalt your mention, our Sovereign, always. You are God forever and ever, and beside You we have no other sovereign to redeem, save, free, rescue, provide for, and have mercy [on us] at every time of affliction and oppression. We have no sovereign but You. You are God of the first and the last, God of all creations and all their descendants, who is praised with the greatest praises and who governs His world in kindness and His creations in mercy. Adonai neither slumbers nor sleeps. He wakes the sleeping and arouses the slumbering. He causes the dumb to speak, releases the bound, supports the fallen, and straightens the bent. releases the bound, supports the fallen, and straightens the bent. If our mouths were as full of song as the sea, and on our tongues cries of joy like its mighty waves, and our lips as broad as the horizon with praise, and our eyes radiant like the sun and moon, and our hands stretched out like eagles in the sky, and our legs nimble as rams, we could not thank You enough, Adonai, our God, and God of our ancestors. Nor could we bless Your name for even one of the thousands upon thousands and myriads upon myriads of good things that you have done for our ancestors and for us. You redeemed us from Egypt, Adonai, our God, and You rescued us from the house of slavery. You fed us when we were starving and gave us food even when we were satisfied. You saved us from the sword and rescued us from disease and spared us from terrible sickness. All this Your mercy has done to help us and Your kindness has not left us. Do not abandon us, Adonai, our God, ever! For all this the limbs that you formed for us, the breath and spirit that you blew into our nostrils, and the tongues that you placed in our mouths will indeed thank and bless and praise and glorify and exalt and worship and sanctify Your Name and declare You sovereign, our Sovereign. For every mouth will thank you, every tongue will swear, every knee will bend to You, all heights will bow down to You, all hearts will fear You, and all innards and kidneys will sing to Your name, as scripture says: “All my bones say: Adonai, who is like You? You rescue the humble from one who is stronger than he, and the humble and poor from the one who robs him.” Who can be compared to You, who can be likened to You, who is similar to You, great, mighty, awesome God, Most High God, Master of heaven and earth? We will praise and extol and glorify You and bless Your holy name, as scripture says: “By David: Bless Adonai, my soul, and all my innards His holy name.” [67]Psalms 103:1

הָאֵל בְּתַעֲצֻמוֹת עֻזֶּֽךָ׃
הַגָּדוֹל בִּכְבוֹד שְׁמֶֽךָ׃
הַגִּבּוּר לָנֶֽצַח

הַמֶּֽלֶךְ הַיּוֹשֵׁב עַל כִּסֵּא רָם וְנִשָּׂא׃
God, in the greatness of Your might;
Great One, in the glory of Your name;
eternally mighty One,
awesome One, in Your awesomeness;
Sovereign, who sits on a high and exalted throne:

שׁוֹכֵן עַד
מָרוֹם וְקָדוֹשׁ שְׁמוֹ.
וְכָתוּב
רַנֲנוּ צַדִּיקִים בַּיְיָ
לַיֽשָׁרִים נָאוָה תְהִלָּה׃
The One who endures forever—
exalted and holy is His name!
Scripture says:
“The righteous rejoice in Adonai;
praise is pleasant to the upright.”[68]Psalm 33:1

בְּפִי יְשָׁרִים תִּתְהַלָּל.
וּבְדִבְרֵי צַדִּיקִים תִּתְבָּרַךְ.
וּבִלְשׁוֹן חֲסִידִים תִּתְרוֹמָם.
וּבְקֶֽרֶב קְדוֹשִׁים תִּתְקַדָּשׁ.
In the mouths of the upright He is praised,
in the words of the righteous He is blessed,
by the tongues of the pious He is exalted,
and in the midst of the holy He is sanctified.

וּבְמַקְהֲלוֹת רִבְבוֹת עַמְּךָ בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּרִנָּה יִתְפָּאַר שִׁמְךָ מַלְכֵּֽנוּ בְּכָׇל־דּוֹר וָדוֹר שֶׁכֵּן חוֹבַת כָׇּל־הַיְצוּרִים לְפָנֶֽיךָ יְיָ אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ וֵאלֹהֵי אֲבוֹתֵֽינוּ לְהוֹדוֹת לְהַלֵּל לְשַּׁבֵּֽחַ לְפָאֵר לְרוֹמֵם לְהַדֵּר לְבָרֵךְ לְעַלֵּה וּלְקַלֵּס עַל כָׇּל־דִּבְרֵי שִׁירוֹת וְתִשְׁבְּחוֹת דָּוִד בֶּן־יִשַׁי עַבְדְּךָ מְשִׁיחֶֽךָ׃
In the congregation of the myriads of Your people, the family of Israel, Your name will be glorified, our Sovereign, in each and every generation. For this is the duty of all creations before You, Adonai our God and God of our ancestors: to thank and praise and glorify You beyond all the words of the songs and praises of David, Your anointed servant.

יִשְׁתַּבַּח שִׁמְךָ לָעַד מַלְכֵּֽנוּ הָאֵל הַמֶּֽלֶךְ הַגָּדוֹל וְהַקָּדוֹשׁ בַּשָּׁמַֽיִם וּבָאָֽרֶץ כִּי לְךָ נָאֶה יְיָ אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ וֵאלֹהֵי אַבוֹתֵֽינוּ שִׁיר וּשְׁבָחָה הַלֵּל וְזִמְרָה עֹז וּמֶמְשָׁלָה נֶֽצַח גְּדֻלָּה וּגְבוּרָה תְּהִלָּה וְתִפְאֶֽרֶת קְדֻשָּׁה וּמַלְכוּת בְּרָכוֹת וְהוֹדָאוֹת מֵעַתָּה וְעַד־עוֹלָם׃ בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ אֵל מֶֽלֶךְ גָּדוֹל בַּתִּשְׁבָּחוֹת אֵל הַהוֹדָאוֹת אֲדוֹן הַנִּפְלָאוֹת הַבּוֹחֵר בְּשִׁירֵי זִמְרָה מֶֽלֶךְ אֵל חֵי הָעוֹלָמִים׃
May Your name be praised forever, our Sovereign, Great and holy divine King in the heavens and the earth. For You is fitting, Adonai our God and God of our ancestors, song and exaltation, praise and melody, might and power, eminence, greatness, strength, praise, glory, holiness, sovereignty, blessings and thanks from now and for all eternity. Blessed are You, Adonai, divine Sovereign worthy of praise and thanksgiving, Master of wonders who chooses melodious songs, Royal God who endures forever.

Blessed are You,
Adonai our God,
Sovereign of the universe,
for the vine
and for the fruit of the vine,
for the produce of the field,
and for the beloved,
good,
and broad land
that you desired and bequeathed to our ancestors
so that they could eat of its fruit
and be sated with its goodness.
Have mercy,
Adonai our God,
on Your people, Israel,
on Your city, Jerusalem,
on Zion, the dwelling-place of Your Glory,
on Your altar,
and on Your temple.
Rebuild the holy city of Jerusalem
speedily in our days,
bring us to it,
and let us rejoice in it.
Then we will eat of its fruit
and be sated with its goodness,
and we will bless You for it
in holiness and purity.
(May it be your will to strengthen us
on this Sabbath day.)
Let us rejoice
on this festival of Matsot.
For You, Adonai,
are good and do good for everyone,
and we thank You
for the land
and for the fruit of the vine.
Blessed are You, Adonai,
for the land
and for the fruit of the vine.

Concluding Songs


חֲסַל סִדּוּר פֶּסַח כְּהִלְכָתוֹ.
כְּכָׇל מִשְׁפָּטוֹ וְחֻקָּתוֹ׃
כַּאֲשֶׁר זָכִינוּ לְסַדֵּר אוֹתוֹ.
כֵּן נִזְכֶּה לַעֲשׂוֹתוֹ׃
זָךְ שׁוֹכֵן מְעוֹנָה.
קוֹמֵם קְהַל מִי מָנָה׃
קָרֵב נַהֵל נִטְעֵי כַנָּה.
פְדוּיִם לְצִיּוֹן בְּרִנָּה׃
 
לְשָּׁנָה הַבָּאָה בִּירוּשָׁלָיִם׃
The Passover seder has been completed correctly
according to all its laws and regulations.
Just as we merited to have a Passover seder,
so may we merit to bring the Passover offering.
Pure One, who dwells in the heavens,
Raise up the assembly that cannot be numbered.
Bring near the day when You lead the stock that you planted,
redeemed, to Zion in joy.
 
Next year in Jerusalem!

One little goat, one little goat
that my father bought for two zuzim.
One little goat, one little goat
 
A cat came and ate the goat
that my father bought for two zuzim.
One little goat, one little goat.
 
A dog came and bit the cat
that ate the goat
that my father bought for two zuzim.
One little goat, one little goat.
 
A stick came and hit the dog
that bit the cat
that ate the goat
that my father bought for two zuzim.
One little goat, one little goat.
 
A fire came and burned the stick
that bit the dog
that bit the cat
that ate the goat
that my father bought for two zuzim.
One little goat, one little goat.
 
Water came and put out the fire
that burned the stick
that bit the dog
that bit the cat
that ate the goat
that my father bought for two zuzim.
One little goat, one little goat.
 
An ox came and drank the water
that put out the fire
that burned the stick
that bit the dog
that bit the cat
that ate the goat
that my father bought for two zuzim.
One little goat, one little goat.
 
A butcher came and slaughtered the ox
that drank the water
that put out the fire
that burned the stick
that bit the dog
that bit the cat
that ate the goat
that my father bought for two zuzim.
One little goat, one little goat.
 
The angel of death came and slaughtered the butcher
who slaughtered the ox
that drank the water
that put out the fire
that burned the stick
that bit the dog
that bit the cat
that ate the goat
that my father bought for two zuzim.
One little goat, one little goat.
 
Then the blessed Holy One came and slaughtered the angel of death
who slaughtered the butcher
who slaughtered the ox
that drank the water
that put out the fire
that burned the stick
that bit the dog
that bit the cat
that ate the goat
that my father bought for two zuzim.
One little goat, one little goat.

  • Hi Eve,

    The text looks great!

    I was curious as to where you sourced this text from, and the eng translation. I’m keen on adapting it to make a haggadah of my own and wanted to know if it has undergone a checking and editing process already, and how you ensured there were no missing words or paragraphs.

    Thanks!

    The Hebrew is from the Heidenheim haggadah. The English is all me. I went over it this year, but I’m sure it could use some more editing/proofreading. I’d also appreciate any feedback.

    I can’t seem to locate the text (English translation). Where is the link?

    I published this Haggadah as a print book under the name “Haggadah with Gender-Neutral Language” by Nancy Quinn Collins, with the following changes: I have removed all the words in the Hebrew alphabet, and changed all the gender-specific words not referring to a specific person or persons of a certain gender to make them gender-neutral. For example I have changed father to parent in the song about the goat bought for two zuzim, and I use words such as One and Creator instead of G-d, including in quotations from scripture, which I believe is a more correct translation. I have also removed “son of [name of father]” from the Haggadah because it does not include the mother’s name as well, and I removed “Teraḥ, father of Abraham and father of Naḥor” for the same reason, replacing the latter quote with ellipses as it is part of scripture. Likewise for similar reasons of gender equality I have removed the quote “and I gave him Isaac. And I gave Isaac Jacob and Esau. And I gave Esau Mount Seir to inherit, and Jacob and his sons went down to Egypt,” replacing it with ellipses, and changed “covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob” to simply “covenant…”, and removed “the house of Jacob” from “the house of Jacob from a foreign land”, and “of Jacob” from “Creator of Jacob”. Likewise for the same reasons I have changed “the family of David to “the family of David and Bathsheba” and changed “Your servant David” to “Your servants David and Bathesheba”, and removed “of Jacob” from “Holy One of Jacob” and removed “Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob” from “our ancestors, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob”, and changed “family of Aaron” to “family of Aaron and Elisheba”, and changed “passed over the son” to “passed over the offspring”, and changed “devoured Jacob and laid waste his habitations” to “devoured Israel and laid waste our habitations” and changed “brings salvation to His king and acts kindly to Their anointed one, to David” to “acts kindly to David and Bathsheba” and changed “the songs and praises of David, Your anointed servant” to “all other songs and praises”.
