Israeli Black Panther Haggadah (1971)

Black Panther

You can find here a partial translation of the 1971 Israeli Black Panther Haggadah. There are 7 pages of the Hebrew original co-authored by Reuven Abergel and an English translation. Contents include the compilers’ introduction as well as political satirical variants of old favorites such as Ha’Lachma Anya, Ehad Mi Yodea, Arba’ah Banim, and Dayeinu. It was originally issued as part of a hunger strike held at the Western Wall during Pesach of that year. Thanks to Rebecca Pierce for sharing on Twitter the post from Unruly, which is self-described as “a social and racial justice blog by the Jews of Color and Sephardi/Mizrahi Caucus organized in partnership with Jewish Voice for Peace.”
