Quick Picks 3/19 – Jonathan Safran Foer and Stephen Colbert talk Passover

by Rachel Solomon on behalf of The Network / March 20, 2012

Best-selling author and fellow Jewish young adult Jonathan Safran Foer recently appeared on The Colbert Report to promote his newly released New American Haggadah. Naturally, Stephen Colbert asked the hard pressing questions like “Didn’t this story already exist?” and “You think you can improve on Moses???”

But just like Foer, anyone can revise the Haggadah. Moses would be flattered! In fact, JewishBoston.com’s Downloadable Haggadah is completely editable. So get in touch with your inner-literary prodigy and revise your own edition (why not add to the 7,000 that already exist?).

And if you’re looking for the whole kit n’ caboodle, request your Seder in a Box today. There have already been over 400 orders- half of them from young adults!
