  1. Irwin, this is awesome! What a powerful use of YouTube videos to get us thinking about the haggadah's deepest and most impactful meanings. I can see this "Blogaddah" on display at a modern art museum or The Jewish Museum in NYC beginning with a variety of printed haggadot to browse through and then monitors set up with your videos playing for a "walk through the haggadah." Thanks for sharing!
