Had the New York Times merely published an article on Passover iPhone applications the same day Tablet Magazine did, it would have been enough.

Had the Times published an article on Passover apps the same day Tablet did, but not published an article on San Francisco’s Distillery No. 209’s kosher-for-Passover gin a day after Tablet did, it would have been enough.

Had the Times published an article on San Francisco’s Distillery No. 209’s kosher-for-Passover gin a day after Tablet did, but not published an article on the Washington Haggadah exhibit nearly a week after Tablet did, it would have been enough.

Had the Times published an article on the Washington Haggadah exhibit almost a week after Tablet did, but not published an article on the debate over whether quinoa is kosher for Passover several days after Tablet did, it would have been enough.

Anyway, the Times piece on the Washington Haggadah, by Edward Rothstein, is actually quite good—give it some of your time. But if you want a more original Haggadah, you might wish to try the version we put together last year with contributors as diffuse as writer Andre Aciman, boxer Dmitriy Salita, and the artist Andrea Dezsö. Our friends at Nextbook Press have posted an interesting excerpt from its latest book, Sacred Trash, about all the different Haggadot structures found among the papers in the Cairo Geniza. And you can find all of our Passover coverage—some of which covers topics the Times hasn’t even subsequently reported on!—at this one handy page.
