Review

No cartoonist can match Richard Codor for his whimsical sense of humor and his understanding of the Jewish world. His Haggadah promises to bridge the greatest divide in the Jewish world between adults and children. --Alan M. Tigay, Executive Editor, Hadassah Magazine

What a delightful romp through the seder via this Joyous Haggadah! The multi-layered narrative and rituals in this haggadah appeal to the eye, the imagination, the funny-bone, and the occasion. Beginning with the prequel of the Joseph story, continuing until the Israelites gain their freedom, and ending with more symbolic rituals and song, the combination of telling the story and conducting the seder is presented clearly with charming and wacky humor (in both words and visuals). The cartoon-like illustrations not only enhance the story but will also add to a memorable and joy-filled shared family experience! --Peninnah Schram,storyteller and author of Jewish folktales

This brief and humorously illustrated haggadah will liven up your seder and entertain both kids and adults. --Jtnews.net

When my kids were younger, I'd look every year for a Haggadah that we could use at our seders. I never found one that I liked very much--they were either too dry, too long, too abbreviated, etc. Richard Codor's Joyous Haggadah seems perfect to me. The drawings are cute, the story is appropriately abbreviated, and it's not dry. When my 13-year-old daughter and her friend saw the book on our kitchen table, they picked it up immediately, started oohing over the pictures, and then read the whole thing. I have to say that's a first for any Haggadah in this house.

I wanted a fun haggadah for a very mixed family passover (ages and religious background) and this one was PERFECT. It had great pictures and some of the wording had been added to or changed to give everyone at the table a chuckle. It was especially entertaining for those of us who have sat through many years with one of the older standard haggadahs.

I bought 5 copies from the author just before Passover and had to order 15 more within 2 days. People were saying that they had been waiting for this book to come along. I will always carry it around Passover time and all I can say is I hope Richard Codor keeps writing books about Jewish holidays.

I have to say, it fell short of my expectations. I feel like it was written for people who have done Seder their whole lives, and are just tired. My kids, ages 23, 20, and 15 did not like it as well as others I have used. It doesn't even have a blessing for the candles! The story is hurried. It feels like the author tried to cover the absolute minimum for a seder, but to me, it feels like less than the minimum should be (and we are Reform - we don't ask for much!) A seder should be educational, but this haggadah is written for the wicked child in a hurry to get it over with, not the wise one who wants to learn all the details. You won't get any special insights here.

It is colorful, light-hearted, and easy to use for non-hebrew-speaking people, but I won't be using it again.

My children,husband and I loved this haggadah. It was easy to read, the print was big and the pictures were wonderful. My husband is not jewish and he does not know the songs so it would have been nice to have a CD with it because we had to skip all the music in the book. I read music but there was no music written out only the words. Other than that the service with this haggadah was enjoyable.

Over the past 44 years of having seders at my home and using many many different haggadot, I've found what seems to be the best as far as telling the story and keeping to tradition in a very enjoyable manner. This will appeal to young and old alike, those who have been to many seders and those who come for the very first time.

I enjoy seders which not only tell the story of passover, but provide "food for thought" by raising important, current and timely issues. But then all my friends started having kids. How to engage the little ones without boring them (and creating cranky seder guests) while still telling the story in a way that will engage the adults and not feel like the abridged sunday school seder? This haggadah is the answer!

I loved this haggadah! I had a seder with 4 children and I bought this for them to enjoy, but as it turned out, the adults loved it even more than the kids! (All 4 kids are under 4 years old, so it was overly ambitious of me to think they could sit still for more than 5 minutes!). It's a very well-organized, well-written book with very amusing and colorful pictures! We had the best Passover seder this year, largely because of this book! We're planning on using it every year for years to come.
