Frequently Asked Questions

How many people can participate in a Seder using Diaspora Journey: A Passover Haggadah Drama?
As many or as few as you want. There are 24 individual “roles,” but there are also “Greek Chorus” roles for “Men,” “Women,” and “All.” The text contains recommendations for playing multiple roles and for involving large groups of people. We’ve used this Haggadah at Seders with as few as five people and at large congregational Seders with more than 100. Every time, the dynamic changes, but the experience remains dramatically charged and exciting every time.

Do participants need to dress in costume when they take part in a Seder using Diaspora Journey: A Passover Haggadah Drama?

That’s up to the people hosting the Seder and the participants, but it’s a lot of fun when people do get into their roles enough to dress in costume.

This doesn’t seem like most of the Haggadot I’ve seen. Are you sure it’s still a real Passover Haggadah?
Yes. A Passover Seder must have specific elements that take place in order. That’s it. There is no requirement that the Seder be structured to be read by one leader and several responding participants, nor is there anything that precludes the use of dramatic structure.
