My 2nd Book (and 3rd, sorta) Review for The Emoji Haggadah

Hi all!

Review #2 follows quickly after review #1 (the most-clicked article this week on the OU website: Ben Rothke, book reviewer extraordinaire, got The Emoji Haggadah into The Jewish Link of New Jersey again:


1) My neighborhood is slightly more interesting than I originally thought.
2) I got a Unique
Haggadah Award! I can't wait to collect in person.
3) A
She'enoi Yodaya Lishol might not be so closed-mouthed while reading my haggadah. I like that. It's sweet.
4) It can bridge gaps between generations.
Halevai this should have that power!
5) Ben doesn't even know that the title of the article is my favorite song, no matter who's singing: The Beatles, Joe Cocker, Macy Gray, or that awesome
auditioner on X-Factor UK.
5b) Second favorite is Hallelujah, and also doesn't matter who's singing.

Shabbat shalom!

My First Book Review for The Emoji Haggadah

My first official book review for The Emoji Haggadah is in, from Rabbi Jack Abramowitz at the Orthodox Union (choshuv!). It is wonderful, and highly complimentary - of me!; not to mention of the book!


1) This is way outside of the box.
2) I'm prolific, and a multi-trick pony. Who knew?
3) Certain people must have this book.
4) It belongs at your
seder table, if not your coffee table (just don't get chometz on it).

But read for yourself:
