A new haggadah is hitting the markets right at the start of Passover, which also happens to be filled with pictures from the protests which have swept the country over the past three months.
The Freedom Haggadah - a Passover gift to the "fighters for the freedom of Israel," as written on the website Restart Israel, had sections by notable figures such as David Grossman, Ilana Bernstein, Etgar Keret, Khel Sarlaoi and others, who have stories on each page that matches the theme of the page. A Haggadah with English-translated passages is also available here.
What is on each page?
David Grossman starts the Haggadah off with a short article about the protests, headlining it Ma nishtana ha'layla hazeh - "Why is this night different from all other nights?
His passage continues to answer that question, saying that "the reason is all of you who are no longer willing to be silent. We who take to the streets to demonstrate. To shout. To roar. We who refuse to go along with the empty spectacle of half-democracy."
A few pages are in Kaddish, the first blessing said on the Passover Seder night; Urkhatz, the washing of the hands; Karpas, blessing of the vegetables and dipping it into salt water; and Yakhatz, the breaking of the matzah.
Turning the page, Yishay Sarid wrote an article talking about the strive for freedom, which is the telling of the story of the Jewish people starting as slaves to the Egyptian Pharaoh to being free and going back to their ancestral home.
The next passage, written by Eran Bar-Gil, asks 'What has changed?" in regards to the country's "development for the sake of all its residents, being based on the principles of freedom, justice and peace." Another contributor to the Haggadah, Dov Elboim, writes how the Haggadah is a story about the struggle to attain freedom.
Many of the writers' works published in this Haggadah were translated by numerous people from Hebrew to English.
