Do I Have to Sign-In?
You can browse the entire Haggadot.com library without having an account, but you will need to sign in once you'd like to save a clip, submit your own content, or create a Haggadah.
I want to add a page from an old family Haggadah. How can I do this?
The are two options: 1) Use your scanner at home to scan a copy of this page. Save it as a JPG and upload it as a clip. 2) Enter just the text of this page as an editable clip. You can enter text by typing directly into the text field on the submit page, or copying and pasting text from a word processing document into the field.
Can I upload a full PDF (several pages)?
Not exactly. At this time, we try to keep all content into modular "clips" which can be mixed and match from one haggadah to another, so we prefer that you take images and texts from your PDF and create individual clips from them. Upload the images as JPG or PNG files, and copy and paste the text into the clip text editor. If you have something that you think is really special and you'd like to share the full PDF, email us and we'll help find a way to share it.
Can I copy and edit a full haggadah?
If you love a featured haggadah, the best way to copy it would be to go through the pages in preview mode and select "add to haggadah" or the "+" to the right of the title of each clip. It only takes a few minutes, and its a great way for you to get familiary with the content before you share it in your own haggadah. This tutorial video will show you how easy it is.
I'm uploading an image, what size should it be?
Its best to make your image square format if possible, and at least 800 pixels on each side. This means your image will be large enough to print clearly on a full page or can be scaled down to a smaller size if desired. You may upload smaller images as needed.
Can I edit someone else's clip?
Not at this time. We want to preserve the creative ownership of each author's content, so we only let the author of that clip make copy edits. You can, however, make edits offline once you download a Word Doc of your haggadah. So we recommend saving the clip as-is to your haggadah, and then making changes privately.
How do I add/change the cover image?
On the Edit Haggadah page, you'll a row near the top with the cover and background. You can change either of them by click on the camera icons (circled in red here).
My community wants to collaborate on a Haggadah. How can we do this?
You can add collaborators to any Haggadah. First, open the Haggadah edit page, then select "invite collaborators" at the top right of the page. You may then enter the e-mail addresses of anyone that you'd like to invite, as well as a personal message. Each individual will then be directed to create a personal account, with access to the shared Haggadah where they may independently add clips.
How do you know that the texts on this site are not prohibited under copyright?
We do our best to review the content submitted daily, but we also ask our users to contribute based on an honor system. If you see a clip that you believe violates copyright restrictions, please inform us and we'll review it immediately. We require all of our users to follow our Sharing Policy.
I downloaded a Word Doc, but the Hebrew looks funny. What should I do?
We've noticed that some users have versions of Word that don't include the Hebrew language pack. You'll need to add it. Some users have also foudn that if they open the document in Goolge Docs, the Hebrew looks fine. To update your languages in Word, read more here.
Do I have to donate to download?
No, but it really helps us maintain the site! We're a small non-profit and we run almost entirely on your donations. If there's a feature that you'd like to add, chances are that we want to add it too, we just need to fundraise for the technology. Plus, your donation is tax-deductible! With that said, we want Jewish content to be accessible for everyone. If you feel that you can't afford to give this year, don't worry about it. We're still happy to help you plan your Passover.
