Unlocking the Hagaddah

As many people know, the world’s bestselling book is the Bible. But in the Jewish world, the bestselling book is arguably the Haggadah which can be found in many households where there is no Bible.

Regardless of their degree of religious observance, on the first night of Passover, as well as the second in most diaspora communities, Jews around the world tend to gather in family clusters and sometimes with the addition of friends or even strangers to retell the story of the exodus from Egypt, and the evolution from slavery, to freedom to nationhood.
