My haggadah review for JTA is online! (Plus something I didn’t include in the review!)

YES! For additional liturgical hilarity, keep reading below the image.

You can read the whole thing here. And then you can all pat yourselves on your backs because you’ve been reading this stuff all along.

Also, the Cokie Roberts Haggadah, as I’ve taken to calling it, has something pretty hilarious in it. Most–though not all–sections of this haggadah begin with a little black and white water color of something related to the section. For instance, the section where you explain the meanings of all the foods on the seder plate has a little picture of a seder plate.

And then there’s this:

This is clearly a section that doesn’t need an image. Some have one and some don’t, such as Washing the Hands and the Four Questions, so why this one?

I have no answer for you. But if you were thinking that the siddur in the image above looked familiar, let me just show this:

Gah. When I turned to this page, I leapt from my chair, ran to my room and grabbed the Wasserman Edition of the ArtScroll Siddur. Lo and behold, friends.

Not that I’m implying this is some kind of conspiracy. I’m guessing some illustrator just googled siddur and went with a nice looking one.
