how the kids react today.
Love this effort and you for making it happen!!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. It's great!
Dear Uncle Eli:
You are wonderful!!! What an inspirational haggadah. I will share this address with our Religious School Leader. We live in a small community in North Carolina. Our temple has about 150 families from about 10 surrounding counties. What a joy it is to read your haggadah. I am taking my 9 year old son to NYC for his first big family seder with lots of other kids. My sister and her friends so a communal seder, so this will be our special contribution. Thank you. What else do you do? (ie, other pages, books, etc.) Shalom.
Magnificent! You've done here exactly what a website should be. My son had more fun than you can imagine exploring Uncle Eli's. Thank you.
Thank you for introducing me to such a fun haggadah for kids. In this, my first year of marriage, my husband, who is not Jewish -- Catholic, invited his sister and her husband and 3 children, all under the age of 9, all of whom are Catholic, to our house for Passover. I have been searching the Internet for days looking for a haggadah that might be fun for the kids and easy to understand, since they don't know the first thing about Passover, and your Haggadah was a welcome surprise! Very creative!
Thanks!! It is superb
THANK YOU SOOOOOOOO MUCH!
I've just printed your Haggadah, and plan on using it with our family and guests this year........
I'm going to produce it, with the help of my nephew, niece, and daughter!
This is just what I was looking for, when perusing through the web! Have a very happy and Kosher Pesach,
I publish an "outreach" webzine and would like to know if we can reprint part of your "haggadah." I've seen people e-mailing it back and forth and wanted to make sure my actions would be 1000% "kosher for Passover."
Of course, we'd credit you with a copyright and all of that.
Dear Mr. Segal,
My name is Ari Hirsch. I'm the associate editor of a free weekly publication that comes out in Brooklyn, NY. I have recently visited your site and I was wondering if we can copy parts of it. We will definitely write on the bottom where we took it from. We do this a lot with other sites such as Torahtots and Chabad sites and they ask us to print parts of their sites all the time. Thanks and have a Chag Kusher V'Sameach.
I logged on to find "Passover lyrics set to show tunes or folk tunes" for our "all Gentile" seder this year. (How do goyim who've never been to a seder before know how to sing Had Gadya??) I was rather frustrated not to find any--but did get a chuckle from parts of your Haggadah.
Hope I hear from you soon!!
Your brilliant website on Passover has been a delight. My nephew ..., a computer whiz for works for the State Department here in the USA, sent it to me. At first I thought that surely [he] created it. But as I got into it I realized that there are other brilliant people in the world besides [him] and my two daughters and my 4 grandchildren who are going to enjoy your gift with me at Sedar night.
Eli, you are indeed a genius. You have a combination of being scholarly on Jewish tradition, along with a sense of humor, and if all this were not enough you have the gift of creativity and computer knowhow. A blessing. Your mother, wife and family I'm sure are very proud of you.
And Eli, when I tell you all this, don't take it lightly because I know of what I speak. I had a comprehensive Hebrew educational background. As a child I went to Hebrew School, sang in the choir, went on to ... Hebrew High School, so I am very knowledgeable and appreciative of Hebrew/Jewish music, tradition, et al.
In addition, in today's world I'm a VP of Sales & Marketing at a US Medical publishing house and conference organizer. Among other things, I have been involved in the work of getting our web pages up on the net. During this exercise I have worked with some creative people, and a lot of klutzes. You are a gem. I wish you weren't so busy, and were closer to New York.
Keep up your good work. A Zeisen Pesach.
With two youngsters coming to dinner who have never been exposed to a seder, I needed something to keep them busy while I was working in the kitchen. I think your book will do the trick.
...One of my congregants stumbled upon your page and was sincerely impressed with your cleverness re the Haggadah.
We are having an intro to Pesach in our congregation this coming Shabbat and will be prominently featuring your opus.
You should start a full holiday cycle of creative works...
I just wanted you to know that in all my years of "community service" (some served as President), none has given me so little pain and such great pleasure as being "President" of the "Uncle Eli Fan Club" :>) I can tell from the letters you've received that membership is increasing by leaps and bounds - and I didn't even have to make a phone call! What more could a President ask?!
And thank you for giving my "published" comments pretty close to top billing! I had stopped doing the column about a year ago (and the webification a year before that!); but the WJB (formerly known as the JWB) recently approached me and asked me to start doing the column again (and now they're even going to **pay** me!!) so I've come out of retirement! Maybe I'll finally get around to webifying the others, too!
I do love the bells and whistles you've added, btw - particularly the enchanting
