I have a whole stack of DIY (Do It Yourself) Haggadahs at home. This week, I realized that so few of them are actually available online. So, I put out a call to folks a few days ago to share resources, for those who’d be willing to have their materials online, and did a little digging around online. As a disclaimer, I haven’t read all of them in full, and this list is in no way complete. Some didn’t have their haggadahs available electronically. Others don’t “DIY” a whole haggadah — they purchase haggadahs or use a family’s traditional haggadah with supplements, so I have an insert/supplement section as well.
This is just a taste of what I know are hundreds more haggadahs and supplements pieced together — mostly DIY haggadahs/zines — microcosms of beautiful, radical, ritual, traditional, multi-dimensional and multi-layered Jewish life. So please don’t hesitate to add yours to the mix. If it’s online, add a link. If you need it uploaded, you know how to reach me.
Hag Pesach everyone — may we all be moved out of the narrow places inside of us, and around us, so that next year we may all be closer to justice & liberation!
