Zeev Engelmayer Haggadah

About 8 years ago, one of my closest friends brought this irreverent Haggadah over the ocean for me from Israel. It's illustrated by Zeev Engelmayer, a comic artist living and working in Tel Aviv. He regularly publishes comics in Israeli newspapers and magazines, and his Haggadah shows him at his twisted best.

The four sons:

Chad gadya and rachtza / motzi matzah / maror / korech / shulchan orech:

Chametz! Chametz!
