This handy guide also has com-
ments from students — from "dy-
namic, engaging and innovative
as possible" (at Washington Uni-
versity in St. Louis) to "I would
like to see more people come out
to enjoy social events, learning,

which makes a person Jewish" (at

aggadah collectors and fans
everywhere: just in time for
the holiday comes the
Shocken Passover Hag-
gadah (Schocken). Edited by
Nahum Glatzer, this book is in
English and Hebrew and features
illustrations from Haggadot of
years past.
Included are:

iriam and Samuel live
with their children Es-
ther, Elisheva, Abigail,
Yehuda, David and
Joseph. And when they complain
that it's too much commotion,
their rabbi tells them to bring in
a cow.

Daniel and Chana Sperber and il-
lustrated by Jeffrey Allon.
It's fun reading (no matter how

Worse?" the family finally escorts
the goat, cow and donkey out of
their home, suddenly finding it

Also included are "Yosefs Love
for the Sabbath," the story of a
poor man who, despite a landlord's
threat, refuses to work on the Sab-
bath (he later is rewarded with a
fish carrying a diamond in his bel-
ly) and the wonderful "God's Hid-
den Way," a story of a prophet,
miracles and one answer to the
question, "Why do good people suf-
fer and wicked men prosper?"
Daniel Sperber is professor of
Talmud at Bar-Ilan University,
and his wife teaches English. ❑
