Reviews - What do customers think about Family Haggadah: Hagadah Shel Pesah (Artscroll Mesorah Series)?
Good value, lacking transliteration May 5, 2008
When I placed my order, I had not noticed that this Haggadah does not have transliterations, so it is better for individuals who read Hebrew fluently. Otherwise good value, fairly nice presentation.
Across the Spectrum Haggadah Apr 6, 2007
I found this Haggadah to be good, not great. It had all of the requisite detail for the Seder, and a fairly well-organized and easy to read style. Still, I found some of the translations from Hebrew into English to be clumsy, awkward and in some cases difficult to understand at all. We are not Orthodox, so the constant references to "Hashem" was not something we are used to. But I bought this Haggadah knowing it could span from Orthodox across to Reform, so perhaps I should have considered that. All in all, it was more than adequate. My main critique was the clumsy English translations.
Easy, Simple and Clear Jan 11, 2006
This handy Haggadah is a must have. It has clear instructions, a clear type, and an excellent translation (as one would expect from Artscroll). This past passover it was a treasure to use. I had an in-depth haggadah to look up insights, and then this one to use for the seder - it was great, I did not miss a beat with its user-friendliness. Also its large print made it a gem after the fourth cup !! The seder can be a chaotic jumbled mess, but this handy book in a convenient size (not too small and not too big), made every moment a memorable experience. Sometimes its just the telling of the story - without all the extras that does it best. Thank you artscroll.
ive been looking for a replacement Oct 27, 2005
this is just what i was looking for to replace the very old family books that were so out of date. Thank you so much for the books I bought 15 of them
Not five stars after all. Jul 5, 2005
I had to change my review after we actually used this Haggadah at the seder. My opinion is not influenced by the fact that my hyper-active 6 year old quietly disappeared during the seder and came back to the table with blood dripping from his eye-brow (he fell on a stick he had taken inside and was playing with). My husband took him to the emergency room and another man finished the seder. But afterwards, we all agreed that in general the Haggadah didn't work for us. Another friend also bought this one and said she didn't like it. I bought a different one the next year that was specifically created for little kids.
