With Hashem's loving grace, I had the special privilege of reviewing the Dry Bones Haggadah, so masterfully done by my esteemed and cherished friend, Yaakov Kirschen of Dry Bones fame. Yaakov's wit, artistry, love of Judaism and his love of the Jewish People graces every page of this delightful English-Hebrew Haggada, which will certainly gladden the hearts of all those who use it. What's more, this Haggadah is a wonderful outreach tool in making Seder night - what some perceive to be a heavy burden - into an accessible and enjoyable experience. May the Almighty bless Yaakov with success in this endeavor, good health and long life, so he can continue to do many more wonderful things for the Jewish People. With blessings and very best wishes, Rabbi Lazer Brody, Ashdod, Israel, --Rabbi Lazer Brody
Dry Bones Passover Haggadah Kirschen's Haggadah is a combination of the traditional (all the Hebrew text, with directions and explanations) and the innovative (some old Passover-related cartoons, some new ones, and his ubiquitous Uncle Shuldig figure, the Jewish people s Greek chorus). The Haggadah should be something that brings us all together, Kirschen says in a telephone interview from his Tel Aviv home. The Haggadah is the only book that is in every Jewish home. And many of them are illustrated. It is the graphic novel of the Jewish people. He says the readers of Dry Bones range from extreme progressives to the most black-hat haredim. And that, says Kirschen, a graduate of Queens College, is what the Dry Bones Haggadah is shooting for. There's no political or religious agenda in it just the serious Yom Tov themes presented in a light way. I needed to create a Haggadah that speaks to people the way Dry Bones speaks to people, Kirschen says. --NY Jewish Week Newspaper
Veteran creator of 'Dry Bones' cartoons creates a 'guidebook' relevant for Jews of every stripe and every generation. Each page of this brand-new, self-published Hebrew-English Haggadah is framed by graphics and Dry Bones cartoons, many featuring the beloved character of Uncle Shuldig. Its structure, says Kirschen, is modeled on the Talmud, with the main text appearing in the middle of the page and surrounded by commentary in this case, various elements of contemporary relevance and wit in the more than 3,000-year-old story of the Exodus from Egypt. --Haaretz Newspaper
