If you expect a dull, dry Haggadah, then you will be pleasantly surprised. Martin Bodek has written The Coronavirus Haggadah as a humorous look at a Jewish high and holy day that has existed for millennia. Social distancing, disease, and fear will not keep a good Jew from having the Passover meal and celebration. Martin makes a great statement near the end of the Hallel. He wrote, “Man, I hope you haven’t been using this here Haggadah as an actual substitute!” Please, as you read this book, remember it is written in jest and not intended to be offensive. To be honest, we have all had to make some changes in our traditions. You are way too serious if you read this book and do not have some good laughs. During this time of crisis, it is essential to remember to laugh.
Has the Coronavirus gotten you down? Do you need some humor in your life? If so, then Martin Bodek has the chicken soup cure for you. It comes in the form of his new book, The Coronavirus Haggadah. Martin has taken the traditional Haggadah and adapted it to the current situation. His style of writing is humorous and lighthearted. I understand how serious the Haggadah is, but Martin means no disrespect. On the contrary, he is trying to make this shutdown more endurable. It seems Martin is familiar with the traditional Haggadah but chose it to shed light on changes we have all faced during the pandemic. If you are a strictly observant Jew, you may not like this book. However, everyone else will enjoy reading it.
