For This We Left Egypt?

(2017)
A non fiction book by

 
This is no ordinary Haggadah. If you've ever suffered through a Passover Seder, you're well aware of the fact that the entire evening can last as long as the exodus from Egypt itself. There are countless stories, dozens of blessings, and far too many hand-washings while the meal turns cold. Now, prepare to be entertained by another version of the book that's responsible for this interminable tradition.

With this hilarious parody Haggadah from the comedic minds of Dave Barry, Alan Zweibel, and Adam Mansbach, good Jews everywhere will no longer have to sit (and sleep) through a lengthy and boring Seder. For This We Left Egypt? will help you carry on the ancient Jewish ritual of sitting around a table and complaining, followed by a soup course. The authors will be take you through every step of the Seder, from getting rid of all the chametz in your home by setting it on fire with a kosher blowtorch, to breaking the middle matzah (that is, if you can find a piece that isn't already broken), to a retelling of the Passover story starring Pharaoh Schmuck and a burning bush that sounds kind of like Morgan Freeman, set against the backdrop of the Promised Land (which turned out not to be a land of milk and honey, but rather one of rocks and venomous scorpions the size of Yorkshire terriers). Then, just when you think you're about to pass out from hunger (having survived only on copious amounts of wine and matzah dust) you can finally eat a brisket to celebrate and then wrap up the whole evening by taking at least forty-five minutes to say goodbye to everyone.

So gather all the Jews in your life (even the few who don't appear to be long suffering) and settle in for a fun way to pass the time while waiting for Elijah to show up.
