If you’ve ever attended a Passover Seder you probably know what a Haggadah is. If not, let me explain. A Haggadah is a book of Jewish text that is read at the Seder table during the first two nights of Passover. Rituals are laid out, prayers are included, and the story of Passover is told.
If you love the traditional style, that’s great! Personally, I find the basic Haggadahs, just a tiny bit boring. So naturally, I scoured the internet for the weirdest, quirkiest, most laughable Passover Haggadot so you don’t have to.
