The book contains all the text, in Hebrew and English, that you would expect to find in a haggadah, along with short bits of commentary relating each part of the seder to a concept in Harry Potter. I particularly enjoyed Rabbi Rosenberg's musings on goblins' ability to perform bittul hametz and the parallels between the four Hogwarts houses and the four children in the seder.
Sprinkled throughout are also thought-provoking questions and some short answers provided by Rabbi Rosenberg's students--these are absolutely precious and alternately had me cracking up and pausing to dwell on some truly insightful answers.
At the end of the haggadah are six complementary essays on topics important to both Harry Potter and the story of Passover, from "Slavery and Freedom" to "Empathy for Your Enemies." I can't wait to sit down and read these and discuss them with my friends.
We didn't get to every page that night, but I am leaving it out so I can read bits of it here and there post-Pesach. I think it's my new favorite-of-all-time Haggadah.
