Our Hagodo shel Pesaḥ project plans to release a number of different editions of minhog Ashkenaz hagodos.
The first of these is a minhog Ashkenaz hagodo with Hebrew text and English instructions which is now available as a proof of concept edition in time for Pesaḥ 5799.
This proof of concept edition contains all the hagodo text needed for a kosher seder. However, it does not yet have the Yiddish text for Eḥod Mi Youdeya, Ḥad Gadyo, and Eiyn Keilouheiynu as we have been unable to find a public domain source for them. (Please do contact us if you know of one.)
The design of this proof of concept edition is simple and utilitarian with no decorative illustrations. (The sole illustration is a diagram showing the layout of a Remo seder plate.) We plan to publish a variety of editions with different designs and formats once this proof of concept edition is tested and complete.
Features of this edition include:
- Large clear readable Hebrew text in Koren typefaces.
- English instructions based on the publications of the Machon Moreshes Ashkenaz.
- Instructions for the search for ḥometz, burning ḥometz, the seder plate according to Remo, eruv tavshilin, and candlelighting.
- Detailed instructions throughout the seder text for both the seder leader and participants.
See our product information page for a sample two page spread and information on how to order a print-on-demand copy of the proof of concept edition.
