"Irreverent, inspiring, and one of the funniest things I’ve ever read."—Tikkun
 
“They raised a beetroot in the air and shouted f*** capitalism!”—Daily Mail, on the 2018 Jewdas seder
 
If you want a traditional Jewish seder, DO NOT BUY THIS HAGGADAH! This unauthorized and hilarious Haggadah from the legendary Jewdas collective propagates a multitude of dangerous ideas, including workers' rights, liberation of the oppressed, and the dismantling of nation-states, all in line with Rabbi Geoffrey Cohen's heretical diasporic ideology.  (Rabbi Cohen is the pen name created by the collective to use in publication.)
 
Don’t be shocked or surprised with what you get from Jewdas. Self-described as radical, known for its far-left point-of-view, it offers satire and arranges events designed to shock, provoke, and make you think. They stand “in complete solidarity with the people of Palestine” and want to “stand the barricades together” in a revolution against oppression.
 
Fully functional and designed for use at your next (radical) seder, this Haggadah includes never-before-seen fragments from the “Book of Geoffrey, “including dreams, stories, new and old liturgy, illustrations, recipes, songs, and even sexts and party games. Its pages celebrate contemporary left-wing wins and explore radical Jewish communist history while inciting readers to create change in the world.  It advices, “This is the Haggadah that we will use at our diasporic seder in 5779. You are welcome to take it as a whole to use at your seder, however you are also invited to use this Haggadah as inspiration, using bits that speak to you aside and parts that don’t.” Jewdas wants you to add modern revolutionary thinking to your Seder traditions. After, all freedom from bondage was once revolutionary thinking!
 
A practical tool for enabling Jews across the diaspora to hold alternative seders of their own, A Jewdas Haggadah reflects a uniquely political and joyous form of Jewish practice.
Rabbi Geoffrey Cohen is the spiritual leader and collective pseudonym of the members of Jewdas.
