This Passover, Don’t Fuhaggadahboudit! New Cartoon Haggadah Refreshes the Traditional Seder.
Updated: Mar 31, 2022
Suffer no more this Passover. And don’t dread it either.
Manhattan-based writer Danielle Brody, 29, announced her second Haggadah, “Don’t FUHAGGADAHBOUDIT” is now available for purchase in print and digital download. The Passover guide is filled with pandemic puns and original illustrations, all of which depict the story of Passover. It upholds the tradition of the Seder in a funny, enjoyable, easy-to-follow format.
It’s family-friendly, appropriate for interfaith Seders, and approachable for any level of Judaism. She's also hosting second-night Seder event to go with the book.
Brody originally published a limited-run edition of the Haggadah last March and updated it this year to be even more timely, with new illustrations, and an original song. She also hosted a Seder on Zoom last year. This year, she's hosting a live event.
“The community embraced ‘Don’t Fuhaggadahboudit’ more than I could have imagined last year by using the book and joining my virtual Seder,” Brody said. “I’m thrilled to bring back an updated version that’s even better and produce a live event.”
“Don’t Fuhaggadahboudit” tells the story of the exodus of the Jewish people led by Moses, but puts an entertaining spin on the thousand-year-old tale. Examples include: a quarantined Afikomen, Moses sailing down the East River on the ferry, and plagues like variants and social media outages.
Brody is also producing and hosting a Saturday Second Night Seder Show to bring the Haggadah to life. The event takes place April 16 at the Jewish Community Project Downtown in Tribeca, and will be accessible virtually, as well. It will feature comedy, wine, and music. Tickets are available here.
