Why is this haggadah different from all others? Because it holds the true meaning of Passover—that the liberation of all oppressed and enslaved people is God's will—above all other theological and political concerns.
This isn't the haggadah for Jews or Goyim or atheists or Christians or Fascists or Communists—this is the one for you, you who demands real justice for yourself and all the world. This is the haggadah for the people, all of us, and it was made with the knowledge that so long as one of us is shackled, none of us are free.
Barukh attah Adonai eloheinu melekh ha-olam, borei peri hagafen.
All those among us with a "thing" about washing their hands all the time, go ahead...it's your time.
Baruch Atah Adonai, Eloheinu melech ha’olam, borei p’ri ha’adamah.
Baruch Atah Adonai Eloheinu Melech ha’olam, hamotzei lechem min ha’aretz.
Praised are you, Adonai, our God, sovereign of the universe, who has made us holy through His commandments, commanding us to eat the bitter herb.
This way of eating matzah, maror and haroset reminds us of how Hillel would do so when the Second Temple still existed, making a sandwich of the Pashal lamb, matzah and maror, fulfilling the Torah injunction: “with matzot and maror they shall eat the Pashal lamb.”
It's time to eat dinner before finishing the rest of the Haggadah. While eating dinner, make sure to defend yourself against the possibility that the person to your right will attack you with a banana.
